Skipper.

Skipper.

Large Skipper butterfly in lovely sunshine Smile..... nectarizing amongst perennial Wallflowers which I thought added a good natural surrounding for it.

Thanks to PhillipMinnis for his GEA on previous image..... and to all who left C & C's

Thanks for stopping by - appreciated.

A beauty Brian, good DOF throwing the wallflowers out of focus but still adding to the ovarall colour, pin sharp and detailed.

I thought it was a moth at first, superb detail and light on the butterfly and everything else is nice and blur.
Have a good weekend Brian
