This is a butterfly belonging to the family Hesperiidae, also known as skipper. They are small or medium in size, with a stocky body and thick thorax (the body region between the head and abdomen). An easy way to identify them is when they are basking for many do so with one pair of wing folded and another pair outstretched. In addition many have a characteristic antenna whereby the tip is bent outward. They appear to skip from place to place due to their rapid and short flight, hence the common name skipper.

In macro phtography the most important is have the eyes in focus and in this case they are.

I do not want to be misunderstood, I'm not teaching anything to anyone, but due to short DOF of this lens the most important in this kind of photos is have the eyes and head in focus, my apologies if this offends someone
