A Large skipper, though why you English speaking folks call it large I do not know.

Paul, Victor - some fine examples of why we don't always need a macro lens!

I think the bokeh on the Paul's CZ beats your 70400 though, Victor .

Skippers are tricky Blutengelnouta - not only is the Large Skipper not very large compared to other moths and butterflies, I'm guessing from the details of the antennae and the lack of slightly darker wing patches that the species in your photo is not in fact a Large Skipper aka Ringlet...

That's purely going by some other web photos though, of UK specimens like these and swedish ones on this page. No idea whether these can be as variable as some of the species around here in the west, but perhaps it's an Essex Skipper instead ... even though it's posing rather far from Essex?
