Hello friends in TN,

Skippers as a whole are distinguished from the higher butterflies by their large moth-like bodies, small wings, hooked antennae (except in the Giant Skippers), by having five branches of the radius vein arising from the large central cell. The larvae spin slight cocoons in which to pupate and the pupae are rounded rather than angular.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
Awesome macro of this pretty little Skipper. You can't get much more of a detailed shot then this!! The colors are natural which I always appreciate, and the exposure is right on the money. Great job as usual!! Very informative notes.

What a delightful macro! Just love the eyes and beautiful coloration displayed here!

Hi, dear friend.
I missed this amazing picture. Subject is simply sweet. 3D-effect is fantastic, as well as splendid colourful nicely blurred BG, details of the skipper and leaf, blameless composition and impressive magnification level. Bravo. Well done.
