Non conosco la specie, dovrebbe essere un Hesperidae
I don't know id of this skipper
As usual thanks to Ivan for identification:)
it's Carcharodus alceae

Famiglia ESPERIDI

Carcharodus alceae (Esper 1780) Alcea
Ali anteriori 13-16 mm

Farfalla di piccole dimensioni con parti superiori marroni sulle quali fanno spicco piccole tacche trasparenti, inferiormente il colore è più pallido con macchie dal contorno poco definito sulle ali posteriori. Le femmine sono in media più grandi, ma simili ai maschi nella colorazione. Questi ultimi presentano, peculiarità della famiglia, una piega con androconio sulla costa delle ali anteriori.
Compare in Aprile e dà luogo a due o tre generazioni. I bruchi, verde grigiastri, con testa grande e collo netto, hanno protorace nero e giallo. Vivono a spese di Malvacee, delle quali accartocciano le foglie con fili di seta entro cui vivono e svernano quelli dell'ultima generazione.
Presente in Nordafrica ed Europa centrale e meridionale, fino all'Asia centrale. È specie prevalentemente collinare, sebbene possa spingersi oltre i 2000 m. Nel territorio è alquanto comune, riscontrabile in radure e prati fioriti soleggiati.

Hello Silvio,
Fine capture of the Mallow Skipper (Carcharodus alcaea). Good sharpness and DOF and taken from an unusual POV, but one that allows the ID. Pleasing composition with fine BG too.
Nice to see this species shown on TN!
Ciao, Ivan

Bentornato dalle ferie, Sorcino ;)

Bellissimo cromatismo, ottima definizione - forse manca un filo di pdc e la composizione avrebbe beneficiato se fosse stata più a sx.

Hi Silvio,
Wonderful shot of the skipper with great lighting and sharp details. I like the angular stick running across the frame and you have captured a fine pose. The smooth BG lets the subjects stand out elegantly. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Silvio.
What a lovely pose of the insect and impressive POV. I like this simple and very nice subject, excellent reproduction of the scene and nice lights and colours of the shot. My compliments and TFS.
Alexei.

Buen formato de presentación y encuadre. Atractivos colores en solamente dos tonos. Dificultad en la toma por el tamaño del insecto y la luz. Bonita.
Saludos Silvio.
