Peck's Skipper?
I have something similar here, don't know what it is. I, too, suppose it's from the family hesperiidae.

I don't know which settings You mean. :unsure:
Afaik there is only one, the step size which I set to 7.
Number of pictures was set to 70 but I stoped after the 57th (ok this is a second).

Edit: I used Av mode with fix iso
That’s what I was referring to, step size and number of pics. Thanks.

I would suggest some tests with Your own lens! I did series with differnt step sizes with the Sigma: bare lens, with extension tube and with 2x TC. Size 7 works best in all cases. But possibly could be differnt with another lens.

A very real portion of what makes good pictures I've learned from watching here--perhaps that shows how much I have to learn but that's the way it goes.

I like this one a bit. I'm posting it uncropped (jpeg was fiddled with to get it to fit filesize-wise)...

Those so inclined--download this one, play with it some...in any way you see fit (including crop)...repost and if you would, explain why you did what you did.

My own preferred crop (not shown) features the two critters on lookout duty in a much more prominent way; I'd very much like to see what those who post here regularly would do with it...and why.

Thanks for reading.
