The large skipper (Ochlodes sylvanus) is a butterfly of the Hesperiidae family.It was long known as Ochlodes venatus, but this is a Far Eastern relative. There is still some dispute whether this species should be considered a distinct species or included in O. venatus as a subspecies. Under ICZN rules the specific name, originally proposed as Papilio sylvanus, is invalid as a homonym (of the butterfly now called Anthene sylvanus), but is has been conserved by an ICZN commission decision in 2000.This species occurs throughout Europe, in the East Palearctic ecozone (northern Asia, China and Japan) and in the Nearctic realm. In the British Isles it occurs in England, Wales, and south western Scotland. It can be found anywhere where wild grasses are allowed to grow tall. Hedgerows, woodland clearings and edges are favourites.

An attractive golden colored skipper showing excellent detail and vivid color tones. Very good DOF and just the right amount of exposure. I like the composition and eye level POV you chose. Well done!!
Une très belle présentation de ce papillon.
Le cadrage serré met l'insecte en évidence. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Sylvaine. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
