Most of the butterflies are gone for the year but I saw this Yellowpatch Skipper feeding on a Knapweed wildflower. The colors of the skipper were shades of orange and brown. I had never seen one before.
Skippers, part of the butterfly family, are named for their quick, darting flight habits. Most have the antenna tip modified into a narrow hook-like projection which you can see in the photograph.
Have you ever seen a Yellowpatch Skipper?
