A very fine sharp capture of this skipper, taken from a great POV and showing its proboscis in action against a pleasing OOF natural BG.
I suugest that it could be the Chocolate Demon, Ancistroides nigrita, but I'm not sure.
Thanks and best regards,
I like this capture,that shows this skipper (like a fisherman who runs the fishing line), and eats with his tiny but long pipe ,between the red flowers.....
best regards sERGIO
what a surprisingly long proboscis! That species of skippers seems to be perfectly adapted to that kind of elongated blossoms it is visiting.
Very clear, precisely detailed capture from a most favourable point of view. For composition, I might feel tempted to crop a substancial part from the left, allowing to present the flower and its visitor at larger frame filling size.
With best regards,

Verry good picture with this butterfly eating from flower.Well done.Friendly regards.Alin.
this is great macro-shot for not only skipper but also for reddish flowers with great sharp details. POV/DOF, BG, composition and colors great. exposure and lighting also very nice. thanks for sharing, best wishes
