[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A butterfly is an insect of the order Lepidoptera. Like all Lepidoptera, butterflies are notable for their unusual life cycle with a larval caterpillar stage, an inactive pupal stage, and a spectacular metamorphosis into a familiar and colourful winged adult form. Most species are day-flying so they regularly attract attention. The diverse patterns formed by their brightly coloured wings and their erratic yet graceful flight have made butterfly watching a popular hobby.

Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

hi ileana,
nice picture,

I know little about these but I am guessing it is a Skipper... just because I have seen so many here on TN...but I could be wrong...very wrong..It is a sharp and clear picture however...I'll be back tomorrow with the answer:-)

Hello Ileana,
I realy like this capture of the Skipper. The details are nice and the way that the light on the leaves backlights the wings is really interesting. Goes on my favorites! TFS
