I've got a lot of pictures of these European Skippers and this time of year I see dozens in this meadow. Another chilly morning with some dew and some nice early sun and this one was perched nicely on a yarrow blossom cluster. I couldn't pass it up.

I tried a stack but the little rascal moved its head up while I was shooting the frames for the stack so the blossoms came out OK but the Skipper was a mess. So I extracted the skipper from the best frame I had and perched him on the stack blossoms. I then tried a couple of different crops. The lighting on the stems is nice as is the bg so I think I like the crop that includes more of the plant. Which crop do you like better?

D800, 105f/2.8, 1/10s, f/8, ISO 100, tripod

Plant is 6 frame stack, Skipper is single frame
