Beautiful shot of the little skipper on the coneflower, Elaine. I like the pattern in the background created by the fence as well.

Incredible detail and color that you've captured in this purple cone flower! Ours have been somewhat dried out and withered due to the lack of rain. The chain link fence adds a nice pattern to the background.
