|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Dear TN members,|
This is not a mirror image or super impost photo. Its just a couple are matting at that time.
I found them when I was accidentally approached and they flown away until they stuck at what you can see a grass, this is the only chance that I can have my close-up shot of them.
Male size smaller and more body texture than female.
The butterflies in this family are from small to medium size. Their bodies are large and with relatively small wings. They are usually yellow or white in a dark brown background colour. They fly in a very rapid and jerky style, this is why they call skippers. They are not as colourful as the other four butterfly families.
Most of the butterflies in this family rest with the hindwings open, although a few rest with wings completely closed. Their antenna is usually hooked at the tip.

You did a kind of mirror capture in a great way dear Des.
Very interesting your POV and composition.
Are they matting or what?, because the position is a little bit strange, but well done.
TFS and have a nice weekend.

A bit tight frame but nice and interesting composition. TFS.
Excellent capture, with very good light and sharpness. Well done!
