[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Small Skippers are insects of high summer. Although they spend much of their time basking or resting among vegetation, they are marvellous flyers, manoeuvring expertly through tall grass stems. It is these darting flights, wings glinting golden-brown in the sunlight, that normally alert an observer to their presence. Closer examination will reveal many more individuals nectaring or basking with their wings held in the half-open posture distinctive of skipper butterflies.

Bonjour Rimantas
Bravo pour la netteté et les détails de ce joli papillon. Superbe exposition .Tres jolie la composition et beau macro
Au revoir et merci...JP

Hello Rimantas,
Beatiful skipper, with bery nice an clasical background. Good coloration and saturation. TFS.

Agradables y bien conjuntadas tonalidades Rimantas. La luz también en su punto. Creo
que falta algo de nitidez al conjunto, una lástima ya que el trabajo con el color vale la pena.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.
