An astonishing set of macro images -I didn't notice the beard at first as I like seeing
the open spread of wings and markings. V2 is wonderful for that reason - such a thick coat of scales if that is the right word to
describe the skipper's coat.

Santa seems to have left his bag of toys somewhere and he's looking into that seedpod in V4 to see if it's there Grin
