    That’s a nice little skipper. I had to look it up, it’s a Fiery Skipper. I wonder how it earned that name?

  2. CSK says:

    The sharpness and clarity of the bright yellow is really striking against the soft pastel background.

  3. Flat Earth Luddite says:

    Dang, wunnerful!

  4. Michael Reynolds says:

    Very nice. Frame-able.

  5. al Ameda says:

    This is a very beautiful picture.

    I hope that periodically you ‘curate your photos and select some for framing and display in your home or office?

    I tried a couple of days to take a photo of a damselfly.
    I think it was Beautiful Demoiselle.
    Best I could get was a bluish blur.

    I wonder if you need a tripod to eliminate shake; or a faster shutter speed?
