ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Symmomus Skipper, Trapezites symmomus, sometimes known as Splendid Ochre
is one of the larger Skippers with a body length of up to 2.5cms.
They seem to be far less “nervous” than larger butterflies, which enables one to get quite
close without spooking them. I took a series of shots starting from about a metre away,
moving slowly closer until I achieved this shot. Unfortunately it flew off as I moved to try
for a side view. Photographed at Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia.
