Silver-spotted Skipper

There is a patch of these lemony yellow flowers at the entrance to the swamp I frequent.

It had just stopped raining and the sun popped out, lighting up the flowers and this Silver-spotted Skipper.

He was the only insect I noticed and well over 100 blooms were there for him to work over.

  1. I love Silver-spotted Skippers, Ellen, like this beauty that you have photographed, in part because they are one of the few skipper species that I can reliably identify.

    1. 😃 It was amazing to see this one right at eye level. I will try to remember this one–the name is at least descriptive.

      I probably could have stayed right there for hours, but a storm was threatening.

  2. Love this shot, very nice. I have seen a couple Monarchs and my Milkweed plants are growing really good this year. So maybe there will be more.
