Bonjour Anne,
A very fine macro of a male H. comma.
His features are well shown from this POV with excellent sharpness and natural colours. The composition against the blurred natural BG with the compositae flower is superb too.
A very nice portrait of a species that is now red-listed in Sweden.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée,
Amitiés Ivan

Hello Anne,
Very beautiful photo of this Silver-spotted Skipper on a nice flower. Fantastic sharpness, details and composition. Very good POV, DOF and blurred BG.

Hello Anne,
Sometimes, as in this case, I just want to sit and absorb and enjoy the beauty. Very good DOF with the whole of the insect and virtually all of the flower in sharp focus against the beautiful OOF background. Just a pleasure to view. Well done and best wishes.

Hi Anne,
nice photo of this species. Nice natural colours. Very good point of view. Amazing sharpness and composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Lovely capture of this cute skipper feeding on another lovely flower, good composition and colors. tfs.

J'aime beaucoup cette photo de ce joli petit papillon qui est également présent ici au Canada. La composition, la netteté de l'image, l'arrière-plan bien neutre, ainsi que l'excellent point de vue valorisent très bien le sujet. Merci d'avoir partagé ce petit chef-d'oeuvre!
