Hello Asbed friend,
Ah !.... you're falling in love with these insects, right? ... ha ha ha ... :) is a kind of charm, hard of resist!
A shot planned with POV and composition sincerely very good, it seems that the approach was a bit lost in the insect's head, but you'll get better no doubt! ... It is a beautiful butterfly under Family Hesperiidae (Skippers), but do not know the ID actually, I think I have not seen before this kind of skipper! ... is a very curious species! well done!
TFS, Regards, Jesús

Good Morning MF Asbed,

Incredible macro capture of this colourful skipper from wonderful vantage point with nice details and sharpness. The composition also great.
TFS and have a nice day!

Hello Asbed,
A nice macro of What I think is the Indian Skipper, Hesperia sassacus. The POV makes ID a little difficult but it is sharp and taken with fine colours against a pleasing leafy BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Asbed
tes deux premières photo de papillons sont très réussies, j'aime bien celui-ci parce qu'on a l'impression qu'il nous regarde, jolie pose au milieu de ces feuilles vertes,
les couleurs sont très belles de même que la composition et la netteté
j'espère voir d'autres papillon de ton beau pays
Passe une bonne nuit

Hallo Asbed,
not only birds in-flight, but butterflies too, a very good frontal POV, fine detail and splendid colours in a pleasing composition.
Best regards

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les feuiles cadrent bien le papillon. La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon skipper. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
