Essex skipper, also known as European skipper in America as it's an accidental introduction from these shores in the last century, probably as eggs in grain.

@Pauljig, in the UK your moth is known as a silver 'Y'



A77 + Tamron 180mm macro.

@eccles, Hi Mike: thanks for the name of "my" moth.
I found by first looking in the English wikipedia and then switching to Dutch that the Dutch name is "gamma uil" (uil = owl is not only used for the birds but als for moths!) and the gamma is not so very different from the Y.

The Essex Skipper is called "dikkopje" in Dutch which literally translated into english becomes "little thick head"

As usual I find that one is never too old to learn

Saw this swallowtail (Papilio machaon) resting under a flower, so grabbed my a77 with the 2/24 Zeiss Distagon, mounted on my Manfrotto 055CXPro3 and here's the result


Then changed the lens to Sony 50/2.8 Macro et voila
a7rv + a7riv + Voigtlander, Sony, Rodenstock, Zeiss, M42, Schneider lenses etc.

You are right -- the second one is definitely the nicer show.
