A rather highly decorated little skipper I spotted/captured yesterday, enjoying the dittrichia viscosa, or yellow fleabane, a very common wild flower at this time of year.

A trio of superb macro photographs Carol. Each stuffed with beautiful detail and colour in abundance. I particularly like image number one, the flag ship image. Great point of view, and exquisitely detailed.

You have captured the skipper so well in these shots, Carol, and V 1 is particularly fine, the detail quite excellent.

Three brilliant close ups of this little skipper butterfly, you've captured its wing patterns and markings in such intricate detail. I wonder what species this one is, I'm guessing probably a dingey or a mallow perhaps, no doubt Mr Kiteley will know as he is the expert on foreign butterflies.
