Pyrgus serratulae
(Rambur, 1839)

Pyrgus serratulae([TR:]Zeytuni zıpzıp,[EN:]The Olive Skipper) is a species of skipper (family Hesperiidae). It is a species of mountainous areas of Europe but is absent from the British Isles and Scandinavia.

This is a relatively distinctive species by the standards of the genus, the upperside tending to be plainer than most of its congeners with only tiny white marks on the forewings and almost unmarked on the hindwings. The underside is usually mostly olive-green with paler markings. The wingspan is 24-28 mm. The adults are on the wing in July and August.

Ciao Volkan, lovely skipper on a beautiful blurry BG, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

A beautiful Skipper with a finely rendered jet-black eye Volkan, good POV with just enough DOF, a nice job indeed!

Excellent photograph! All the colours harmonise and the butterfly shows wonderful detail. regards Yiannis

Selamlar volkan bey,
Çok güzel ve net bir kare olmuş.
Elinize sağlık

merhaba, türün güzel bir fotoğrafı olmuş, elinize sağlık. yatay kadraj kullanıp sağda biraz boşluk bırakmak da iyi olabilirmiş.
