Excellent sharpness, lighting, composition and detail of the subject. Wonderful colour is shown in your image too!
This surely is unknown skipper for me friend Jesus. Good day. I have written that it is a commonly seen around there, so I just wonder why you did not post an image previously or now taken from a more appropriate point of view? This angle may be not the ideal, it demand a massive depth of field somehow and you have been quite close to the creature. The near wing seems terribly out of focus. I do not know at least for me that issue is critical my friend. On the other hand the clarity on the focus area is superb. The contrast can be slightly reduced as well I think. The image at the workshop showing us perfectly that beauty from behind. In my opinion a top view, a view from above with widely open wings could be the answer here. If this is a common species around your Town you do not have an excuses, by delivering a result like this one friend Jesus. Use closer aperture or just step back a bit, keep that focus under control my china!
