Nice! A lot of the LBJs can be tough to get a nice shot of - they’re small and drab. This is a nice, sharp shot with a pleasing bg, a colorful but not overwhelming perch, and the curled proboscis adds interest; well done.
Good light,
Craig

Nice image of the skipper, love the proboscis curl and the perch.

Nice composition and sharpness. The color of the flower adds a lot and makes the image. The skipper wouldn't have made it alone. Love the overall image.

Beautiful contrast between the dull skipper and bright flower. Lovely work!
