Hello Mike,
Excellent capture of this Clouded Flat Skipper, a fine specimen captured with good sharpness against an excellent contrasting BG.
Well done and thanks for sharing this one,

Hello Mike,
very good shot of beautiful butterfly.
The only thing which could be improved is the background which shows substantial noise (WORKSHOP).

Hello Mike,
African butterflies, in particular skippers, a largely underrepresented at TN. Therefore, 'double' thanks - first for the posting a picture of that species and second for the excellent picture of that species. Sharpness and presented colour nuances are excellent. Well-selected point of view.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Mike,
Beautiful insect. Sharp macro. Nicely blurred BG. TFS.
