Thymelicus lineola. The Essex Skipper (Thymelicus lineola) is a butterfly of the Hesperiidae family. With a wingspan of 2.5 to 2.9 cm it is very similar in appearance to the Small Skipper Thymelicus sylvestris. The easiest way to tell the difference between the two is to look at the tips of the antennae. The Essex skippers are black whereas those of the Small Skipper are orange. This butterfly occurs throughout much of Europe.

Hi Leonid. This is a very good close up of the Skipper. Which you have taken with fine detail and colours. A good side POv so we can see all of the wing detailed. well done TFS.

have a good weekend.

Hallo Leonid
Superb display of colour. Excellent camera work and a real feast to the eye. Every little detail is just great. From the fine hairs on the head, right down to the paws clutching onto the flower. The fluffyness of the fine hairs on the tummy area is very eye-catching. This is a real outstanding image. Good focus and framing, presented in a delightful manner. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello Leonid ! I love these little skipper, I see many of them during the summer, but it's hard to get a good picture as they are always so quick - but you did a geat job here. Sharpness and details are excellent, nice natural colors, splendid composition, beautiful POV, wonderful blurred BG. Very well done !
