Macro Monday *Checkered White*

I took the following photos in September. I think the Common Checkered Skipper is a very beautiful little butterfly. So, I was pleased when this one decided to pose for me. Not only did it post very nicely, it provided me with both a closed wing photo and an open wing photo. What a considerate little skipper!!!

Thank you to this wonderful Common Checkered Skipper! Gosh, now I feel like I owe it to this skipper to use some free directory submission software to get its name out there and find it a modeling gig. Don't ya think? ;-)

I couldn't tell you anything else about that day. And it's been thirty years. Maybe you don't remember much about your "diagnosis day" for the same reason?


I think he was posing for you...all are absolutely gorgeous!


Great shots and my first visit so I Hope you don't mind me asking - what camera and lens do you use?


He's so sweet! I love seeing September photos to warm me up now. :)
