Hello Peter,
I'm sure you smiled when you brought this up on your screen, what a top quality image!! Focus is superb showing exceptional detail of both skipper and grass perch. Gorgeous natural colors and exposure is simply perfect. Awesome job!!

Hello Peter,
A wonderful image with a nice specie of butterfly. I never meet this specie in my region. It has a very nice and interesting drawing on his wings.

Almost a 3D image of this lovely Skipper, Peter.
Beautiful diagonal composition with pin sharp focus and exceptional details and colours.
Thanks for sharing this image.
