Sorry, this is not a moth but a butterfly, a skipper.

This is an excellent picture of one of the Skipper butterflies of the family Hesperiidae. Sorry I can't help you with the species - it's well out of my geographical area! Pin-sharp, and excellent DOF - pity there are no notes.

Like Merlin says it's not a moth but a butterfly.
It belongs to the Heperiidae family.
I can't identify the specie too because it doesn't exist in Portugal.
Very good job wth this photo!

What a nice and interesting moth that you have well captured ! I like the composition with the droplets in background. Congratulations Kean and thanks for sharing.
