STOPS ALONG THE WAY

SILVER-SPOTTED SKIPPER

22 Comments

SkipperI usually see more orange skippers than the silver-spotted variety shown here. I was pleased to spot this one though, he was as perfect an example as you could hope for. I like to keep my photos as natural as possible and the butterfly made that easy. I cropped in a bit and added some contrast and that about did it.

  3. Nice image, Belinda. Silver Skippers warm themselves on summer mornings on our deck railing. I love these little breakfast companions!

  5. I feel the same about photos. I don’t like to do too much to them, but cropping is harmless and makes for a better framing job. Your skipper is very detailed and it’s thanks to your sharp pictures that I’ve learned to appreciate insects so much more.

    Always better to keep the photographs natural, Belinda ; I hate them being killed in photoshop 😊

  8. Very nice! Amazed that ‘your’ Silver Spotted Skippers are so different from the ones we have in the UK.

  10. Skippers are something special. How can anything that flies so fast and apparently erratically land on a small flower with such precision?
