    Awesome detail D. Is that a stack or just a crop?

    Yes, indeed, awesome detail! Skippers are typically pretty small,making your shot all the more impressive.

    Thanks Derrel and AI.

    Yes, this skipper is about 1 inch or a little less than 1 inch long from head to the end of the wings. And this is a cropped photo. But not 100%

    100mm 1:1, f/14, 1/250, off camera flash 285hv (diffused) x1 with PC cord

    This photo may give you an idea of how big the butterfly is.

    No cropping, just resizing.

    I was going to post a photo of a skipper I got today. Not now, after seeing this. I will wait until it goes down a ways as to not have this beauty to compare mine too. :blushing: Great shot. :thumbsup:
