A fine set of Skipper images Carol. Skippers often look (to me) as though they are about to turn and smile at the camera. Fun insects. A

Good morning Carol!
This trio is very interesting! Not only have you captured the most beautiful details on the skipper but also it's the first time I realise they have horns? !!! Grin How bizarre! What an interesting little thing. As ever excllent and we are learning all the time...
