Sickle-winged Skipper (m)
Achlyodes thraso

Hidalgo Co, TX

At first glance, these little guys just look boring black.  Get a fresh one in nice light, though. . . .

100-400 4.5-5.6 II 
1/100 sec, f/7.1
iso 800
Hand held, natural light

Comments and suggestions always welcome.
Good light,

A lovely image Craig. I like the way the flower enhances the subtle colour of the skipper.

Nice image. The real colors of skipper show well and the light blue color of the flower helps bring up the subjects colors well. Nice composition.
