    Q. Does anybody know what these little yellow insects are crawling on the flower? I found them fascinating.

  2. These are Skipper Butterflies possibly Thymelicus lineola but I have absolutely no idea what the other tiny things are.

    Very nice Victor. They are pretty little things, aren't they?
     
  6. Thanks Bob! Armed with that I looked up some information about lineola, and what I found interesting was that according to butterfliesandmoths.org "This skipper was introduced accidently to North America in 1910 through London, Ontario." I thought that was interesting as I was in London, Ontario photographing them :)
     
  7. Thank you for the comments. I really enjoyed spending time with the butterflies, and stayed out in the sun a bit too long that day (and was sorry the next), but that is typical photographer behaviour :)
     
  8. I really like these, Victor. The colours are wonderful, and your point of focus on these are bang on. The details on #3 are wonderful. Glad to hear you had a great weekend - hot time in the ol' city this past weekend. You were smart to get out! :biggrin:
     
  9. A field full of skippers - beautiful.

    Cheers
     
  10. Thanks Sandi, yes I went away to get some peace and quiet :tongue:

    Thanks Harry, it was wonderful to see them all.
