Just as Ivan said earlier today, is is still wheather to look in the archives for some nice reminders of summer. 2007 has not been a great summer in my memory. I found the best weather in May in Poland. It was also there I found this Carterocephalus silvicola or Northern chequered skipper. This butterfly was present in the forrest of Cerwone Bagno in the Biebrza valley all along the paths. I hope for another great spring season....

Hallo Jacob,
Erg mooie foto van deze vlinder. Scherpte en kleuren zijn magnifiek. De diepte in de foto is perfect. De compositie is onevenwichtig t.o.v. de vlinder, maar dat is de charme van deze foto.

Hell Jacob,
thank you for posting this beautiful picture of silvicola. I have observed many different butterfly species in nature. However, I did not meet silvicola up to now. B yyour picture, I get a nice impression of that species.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Jacob,
It’s a very nice princess. Impressive brown colors.

Hi Jacob,
Fantastic POV and unusual open-wing pose from this skipper. Very good colours and BG. Maybe over-sharpened a bit, or at least looks that way. Well done, thanks.

Bonjour Jacob

Hello Jacob,
Great pic of this beautiful skipper, captured in perfect pose with beautiful details and colors
best regards, Dejan

Ciao Jacob,
grazie per questa magnifica foto di Carterocephalus silvicola.
Una specie veramente bella che non conoscevo e che tu hai saputo fotografare molto bene e in una posizione superba.
Posso inserire la tua foto nel tema da me creato: Hesperiidae Europae ?

Hello Jacob,
You've really got an excellent shot of the Northern Studded Skipper here. I got several shots of this one up north last summer of which I may post one but they're not nearly as good as this one! I like its pose on the leaf and against the soft green background.
Great sharpness and fine natural colours too.
Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Jacob,
I hope you've spent good time in Poland ;-D
Your picture is very good, nice colours and composition. TFS

Hello Jacob

Wonderful sharp detail and clarity.
The lighting is well handled and producing lovely rich natural colours.
Excellent textures are visible in the wings.
The OOF BG is beautiful.
