It's not a moth, it's a skipper similar to this one : http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Belgium/photo2908.htm

Of course, it's not precisely a moth :-), but your photo shows very delicate soft colors, specially the flower graduate hues from pink to blue, a good matching background and sharp details of this butterfly. Peachy wing texture is well expressed. Your note is just a bit short, Tomasz :-)

Bardzo cieple, miekkie kolory. Centralny kadr w niczym nie przeszkadza, motylka ladnie rownowazy kwiat. Jak juz inni pisali wczesniej to nie cma, ale motyl, chyba z rodzaju Karliczkow.

Hi Tomasz, yes this is a butterfly. It's easy to tell butterflies from moths - Butterflies ahve clubbed ends to their antennae and moths do not (in general male moths have fanned antennae and females straight). Good picture of this skipper. Maybe a little too much saturation.

HI Tomasz,
I love the vivid colors! Whatever you did with the background is perfect! I ran out of smiley faces today but will try to return later & add one.
