Noctuana lactifera bipuncta (Plötz 1884)

Some days ago I do not post a Skipper, and I have many in my files!, I think today is an auspicious day to show in TN one of my dear skippers.

Here's a Skipper that I found in the mountains, here we have a huge diversity of Skippers, but these butterflies are always elusive and often more nervous than the butterflies of other families.

I liked a lot found the Skipper on the edge of the mountain forest, she lay on the leave at a time in which the sun was hidden by clouds, I think when the sun goes down, it's easier to take photos of Skippers; because this butterflies decrease activity in times of low activity solar radiation.

Thanks for viisit!

Hello Jesus,
What an amazing Skipper!! Beautiful the different brownish colors and the two white patches on the wings. And you have even found its ID. Bravo for the well taken picture and its excellent presentation. It's true that Skippers are often very nervous flyers and not so easy to catch.
Have a nice weekend!
Kind regards

Hello neighbour Jesus,
When I look at this photo I believe it's ones of your dearest skippers. What a beauty! And the photo too. Great sharpness, details and beautiful contrasting colours. Excellent DOF and taken from a good POV.

Hi jesus,

Very nice pic of this skippper. This could be the 1st on TN. Very well focused & the color patterns are beautiful on the wings. Welldone & TFS.


hello Jesus

great BG to see this one very good
greeting lou

Hi Jesus
Impressive skipper and great photo. The POV, the composition the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Good shot friend Jesus! Why the edge of the Skipper wings looks so strange, like a thin cucumber slide left on a hot desert rock for ages? Interesting!but impressive coloration has this fellow! Good clarity, almost unbelievable! Fantastic depth of field! Your composition seems a clear failure ! Sorry! In my opinion again !.... Bravo! It's a wonderful image in overall once again!

Hi Jesus,
Excellent sharpness, wonderful colours and BG and amazing composition. Best wishes, Pambos

Me desconciertas con tal variedad de especies y sobre todo con tanta belleza :-)
Valoro lo bien que trabajaste los colores, que a pesar de su dificultad en esta ocasión,
ya que se ven perfectamente diferenciados a pesar de ser marrones y negros.
Muy buena luz y pose del insecto.
