From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ochlodes venata is a skipper butterfly species in the family Hesperiidae. The name was long used for the Large Skipper of Europe, but it actually refers to its Far Eastern sister species and the Large Skipper is now called O. sylvanus. There is some dispute however about whether the Large Skipper should not better placed in O. venata as a subspecies sylvanus or faunus.

These two skippers are possibly sympatric in China. Ochlodes venata occurs from there eastwards to Korea and Japan.

Hello Rafaila !
You're my neighbor today, and I'm quite happy to be neighbor to such a great picture ! The amount of details is amazing, we can see each little hair clear and sharp. I also like the vivid colors of the butterfly, contrasting nicely with the dark blurred BG and making the insect stand out wonderfully. Splendid composition, great POV. Very well done !

great close up, TFS Ori

excellent close-up of the pretty skipper! :-) sharpness and details are really great, love the orange tones,
the "furry" body and the big black eye. terrific job & best wishes, thor.

Buna Florentina
Ai obtinut detalii foarte bune, subiectul este in focus si culorile sunt superbe. Un pic cam inchesuit de margini dar e bine per ansamblu.
Mai asteptam si altele.

Ciao Rafaila,

Great macro shot!
Wonderful control on the sharpness and positioning of the subject, nice POV and wonderful details. The colors of the skipper are amazing. Great facial feature details, especially the eyes are the best part. Even the antennae are well focused with nice background colors all over.

Have a nice weekend.

Thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Splendida captura ...culoare, claritate, totul e perfect. Poate crop prea strans, insa e de 10 puncte. Pcat ca eu nu pot pune decat doua, dar o fac din suflet.

Rafaila, this is a wonderful shot of this skipper. Thanks so much for commenting on my sparrows. Have a great day, Bill
