Hello Christopher,
Where have you been? :-) i need your help for my recent posts! Especially today's sand wasp's prey and my flying moth shot :-) i'm very curious about that poor caterpillar, i'm wondering if it could be alive, what it turns to be! Sorry for this unkind request, hope you don't mind.

This is a beautiful shot of this skipper. i like the soft colours here, especially on the bg. A little bit more sharpness on the skipper's wings could be useful, otherwise this is a great shot.
Thank you and best regards!
