Orange Beauty

Even in such a big and polluted city like Mexico City many wild species still survive and marvel us with their beauty. Like this Orange-edged Roadside Skipper, which is a very small skipper and so beautiful with their orange head. In this photo she was preparing to drink some nectar from the flowers. You can see her trunk curled up in the cutest way. We urgently need to learn to appreciate and respect every single living creature in the planet. No life matters more than others, we are all equal.
