[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
In general, skippers are interesting in that they exhibit some moth-like traits and some butterfly-like traits. Like moths, they have stocky, hairy bodies. Like butterflies, they have "knobs" at the ends of their antennae (although a recurved filament protrudes). And they hold their wings simultaneously flat as do moths (the hind wings) and folded up over the body as do butterflies (the fore-wings).

Hi Horia,

A beautifully photographed skipper. Excellent background (deserves a special mention for consistency). The light is excellent, very sober and well balanced, good job.

Hi Horia,
well captured in great composition. The diagonal placement of the branch and the lovely butterfly makes this presentation very pleasant and full of excitement. The sharpness is brilliant with the body well seen and the contrast so good.
Excellent job.

the composition is beautiful and the attribution of colours with good use of light is exceptional as the good sharp details,a great macro moment!
TFS thanks for sharing

hello Horia,
Very fine composition and beautiful color-combination here with the magnificent brown and green tints, colors fittting to the autumnal season.
I like also the way you included quite a lot of the passed plant in the picture.
Very subtle shot.
Kind regards

Hello Horia,
Great photo of this Skipper in very beautiful natural colours. The colours in the OF BG are also very nice. Excellent sharpness, details, DOF and composition.

Nice composition, Horia,
this Silver-spotted skipper (Hesperia comma), as it sits on an autumn twig and looks into green infinity.
best regards
