This one's for you, Maurizio, my friend....

I have no idea what this moth is called, but I do hope I can get its ID.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Goldy,
thank you, my friend, i am glad and proud of your dedication, i do not know the ID of this Skipper like Hesperia comma, beautiful natural colours in a very nice composition with a lovely pose of the butterfly.
Thanks again
Best regards
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Goldy! Nice lightness and brightness, very nice colours, good saturation. Very good contrast. Perfect macro. Well done!

Hi Goldy,

Excellent result, well recorded and with a light that seems to have been awkward, but you've solved a good way. A very interesting Skipper.



Hello Goldy,

From the biggest to the smallest, very versatile indeed!
Excellent details in this fluffy fellow, good texture in the wings and fine details in the head part...
Good point of view gives an eye to eye feeling!

Pablo -

Sure looks like a Skipper...but some say moth? I don't know....Nice colourings...a small bit OOF and not sure why becuase all of other is in...odd..perhaps it is in focus but the lighting throws me off...nice back light!
Your friend

Hi Goldy, great macro photo of this beautiful skipper.
Details, colours and composition are excellent.
TFS. Kind regards,

Hi again L'il Bro,

An another excellent macro capture of this pretty white-speckled skipper from wonderful POV with great details and fine composition. Nice dedication!
TFS and have a nice night!


Hello Goldy
Très belle prise de vue, pour ce papillon.
Je pense que c'est peut-être une virgule.
Bonne précision
Merci Laurent

Dear Goldy

It seems it is quite difficult to find the exact ID of this well photographed skipper or moth. The good sharpness reveals fine details and it is a well deserved dedication for Maurizio.

Kind regards


Ciao Goldy. An excellent close up like gift for Maurizio. Well done!


Hello Goldy,

a nice image from this butterfly with good pov and blurred bg.
GFine colours.


hello Goldy

excellent close-up photo of this insect, shot with fine POV & DOF,
fine focus great sharpness and details, and a wonderful eye-contact,



Very good image of a Skipper butterfly, Goldy.
The focus on the head is very sharp and the typical eye of this butterfly is well etched out.
The veins on the leaf make a fine BG for the subject.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Goldy,
i really like the bright light here, it's given you some very vivid colour and a nice shadow too. Well chosen POV and a good DOF, well done mate!
Have a good weekend,

Interesante angulo de disparo, pero los colores y la luz pueden mejorar Goldy.

De la fotografía que publiqué ayer (Arbutus unedo), su nombre en Ingles es: STRAWBERRY TREE.

Saludos: J. Ignasi.

bonjour Goldy
superbe photo de ce skipper, j'aime bien les couleurs vives du fond et la belle lumière sur la feuille
tu as su capturer ce papillon avec de beaux détails et belle pose
magnifique composition
Passe une bonne nuit

We are unable to travel.... not this year anyway.
These fellows are butterflies, not moths. SKIPPER family. This is a white-speckled one.
We have a lot of them right here in Calgary in the Summer time. Here is a sample of one.
GREAT NATURAL colours on your image. MOST LOVELY.
Mario with friendly greetings from Canada.
