Delaware Skipper/ Macro Monday

I'm very fond these skippers with fuzzy looking wings and big black eyes.

They look so soft and fuzzy. :) That sounds more like a description for a teddy bear or bunny.

Great shots of this one.

Nice shots. I am impressed that you know the names of the butterflies.

The richness of the brown against the green leaves makes an eye-catching photo.

These fellows look very fuzzy-wuzzy. Love the coloration in the capture. Went upstairs yesterday and brought down my moth and butterfly book for the summer. We are seeing more, but they have a long ways to go to be here in mass like they were last summer. Great shots. Genie

Beautiful macro pictures!

I took some photos of these a few weeks ago, not knowing what they were, they are so very unusual with those double wings and huge wide set eyes. Now I know what they are I can post a photo :-)

They are also incredibly difficult to photograph - somehow they are not photogenic at all, I know not why.

Gorgeous. I love the soft focus.

lol, great shots. :) First time I saw this butterfly I thought it was wrong in some way. It was te way the wings is located that puzzled me. :)
