What an excellent, sharp capture.
It looks very much like a Skipper, possibly the Safflower Skipper but I'm not 100% sure.
Lovely, textural details of its wings and with a good dof to isolate it from the b/g.
Ciao Luciano, piccola hesperidae, forse Erynnis tages, bella e ben dettagliata, spicca meravigliosamente sopra uno splendido sfondo, bravo, ciaoSilvio

I like tight crop and great field guide POV. Also great OOF background. There are little overexposures on white spots - maybe you could do a little higlights reduction. Sharpness is pretty good

Excellent sharp view of this Skipper in beautiful light. It stands out very nicely from the natural background. Beautiful colours too! Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

A wonderful capture of this skipper that I think is Obethür's Skipper (Pyrgus armoricanus). The brighter white marks in the middle of the hindwing help to ID it. Excellent sharpness and composition among the yellow flowers.
TFS this fine image of a species that is very rare in Sweden,
Have a good weekend,

Excelentes colores y contrastes. Quizá algo subida de luz pero aceptable sin duda. Veo que esa flor también es común allí; como es de las últimas que aparecen te queda en el recuerdo luego todo el invierno jajaja.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi Tejedor.

You did a very good close-up of this butterfly. The image is so sharp that the texture of the wings cen be easily observed as well as the pattern. Light has been well sued so that colors are very well shown.
Thank you for sharing,

Une image de l'automne avec ses teintes jaunes et brunes. Les Hesperiidae ne sont pas si faciles à identifier,il y a beaucoup des sortes qui sont assez semblables. Il y a près de chez moi quelques sortes, dont je pense que certaines sont endémiques. Je suis sûre qu'en Italie du Nord cela doit aussi être le cas.
Une bonne fin de semaine

I like this picture with the skipper a lot. You got the flower really back into the background, only the butterfly commands our attention. And it is technically well presented.
My best regards to you,
