This is the Orbed Red-underwing Skipper or Hungarian Skipper (Spialia orbifer) a butterfly of the Hesperiidae family.

It is found from south-eastern Europe and temperate Asia to Korea. The habitat consists of steppe on plains and grassy slopes in the mountains.

This has sometimes been treated as a subspecies of Spialia sertorius but can be distinguished by the olive green (rather than reddish-brown) underside of the hindwing.

The wingspan is 24–28 mm. Adults are on wing from April to August in one or two generations per year.

It is so intimate approach to this "Spialia orbifer" It would seem that his wings dimensionally projected out of the picture, to the viewer's eyes. The details are amazing and the background is really nice. Congratulations, Miroslav!

Hi Miroslav.
You managed to picture a very nice species. Its coloration is very attractive and details of the image are great too. I also like diagonal composition of the picture and wonderful natural smooth BG. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Miroslav,
powerful close approach, pleasantly lighted, well composed, showing this very small butterfly with finest details and soft iridescence. Very nice presentation. Thank you!
With best regards,
