I am enjoying this friendly competition so much as you and Philippe are posting some outstanding nature photographs. This I believe is a Small Skipper butterfly, Thymelicus sylvestris. There are several local variations similar that are very hard to tell apart often only by slight variations in colour on their antenna. The small skipper is widely found especially this time of year.

Thank you Richard for your help in identification; It is indeed a Small Skipper (Thymelicus sylvestris) : http://www.leps.it/indexjs.htm?SpeciesPages/ThymeSylve.htm In French : la Bande Noire or Hespie de la houque In German : "Braunkolbiger Braun-Dickkopffalter" In Dutch : "Geelsprietdikkopje" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_Skipper :~)

Lol well I would take issue with Richard I think this is the Large skipper Ochlodes Venatus while very similar to the other skippers it has a hairy end to the tail and is a little more buff in colour.. Nice one anyway my friend

This is something I really like about this community : the great interactions between the members... Thank you very much, dear Danny, for outbiding Richard!! I now learned indeed that the skippers family is very large : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skipper_%28butterfly%29 So, at least this is a Skipper and this makes my choice for Kais image even more judicious ! lol ! in French : Sylvaine (I remember a great artist here with this nickname Anyone has some news from her ?) in German : Dickkopffalter in Dutch : Dikkopjes :~)
