Super shot that David! Not easy to get close too these. This one looks like the Small Skipper. Well done!

Nicely done David. Surprising definition for a x10 close up filter.
From a photographers personal angle I would have run the shot through a noise reduction prog and added some more contrast to make it pop.

Another really good image! I'm happy to note that there aren't any comments in the vein of "this could be anywhere"!
