[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Thing that I realize after taking many shots of butterflies is the fact that this wild flower is one of butterfly's favourite, including smaller species of butterfly like skipper shown in this picture.

Some other insects were also frequently visit this flower, so anytime I see this species of flower blooming, then I feel like I would have a better chance to capture some insects. Just patiently waiting....

Hello Benyamin,
You are right Benjamin, wild flowers are so much more attractive for insects. I prefer them too.
It's why your skipper-picture is so natural and beautiful. Well seen.
Best regards
