To be honest, I'm not sure whether it is a sylvestris (european) or linoleus ( essex) skipper. Hanging around on a leaf corner
it has got orange indicators on the antennae.
Many thanks for your comments regarding our sunflower. It is actually turning redder now and the striped one is also looking good. upload to follow. Seeds available, preferably in exchange.

Fantastic shot. Cathy
Fine shot Annette, excellent detail,
Cannot help you with the ID but it is well captured though.
Delightful all the same Annette.
Gorgeous light, Annette.
The darkish b/g helps to show up the subject very nicely, Annette: the subtle lighting is so attractive and the detail captured could not be better.
Superb shot Annette. Wonderful colours and detail captured.
Lovely capture,good detail.
He is rich in color--- I will skip trying to ID-- Nice work!
Such gorgeous rich orange colour and lush greens in this exceptionally good macro. I have no idea as to which species of skipper this is, if his/her accent was estuary english and not french it is definitely an essex skipper!
Well spotted and captured ,this is a lovely image .....
The spotlight is winderful on this golden beauty.
Stunning detail Annette.
This is a beauty Annette !! Very well captured !
A great capture Annette, the wings look like a tapestry
A wonderful image, Annette, love the way you have captured him in the sunlight, gazing into the distance. Carol
Excellent shot showing lovely detail
Looking at the scent gland on the wing, it is not parallel to the edge of the wing, thus indicating it is not an Essex - I think
Superb composition, an L-shape looking up optimistically into a green airy space.
Ohhh...now this is something. Simply LOVE that light, Annette. Not just how it makes the colour go BOING! but also how it throws the background into perfect shadow like that.
Gorgeous light and detail Annette; a real beauty.
love this simple capture a pleasure to view Annette seem to be basking in its very own golden pool of light
I'm becoming very fond of these little skippers. It looks so small and frail against that open space and is set off so well against the rich green and gently mottled background.
First class photography Annette.
What beautiful light you have captured here. Ann.
