Skipper Resting On Pink Zinnia

A Group of Zinnia

Although my zinnia flowers came late this year, they still produced many fantastic flowers in assorted colors. From orange, red, yellow to pink, the joy of seeing them blooming are un-measureable!

Skipper On Pink Zinnia
This little skipper loved the pink zinnia most, and often came back for quick visit. However, my camera and the weather didn't co-operate when the skipper stopped for a drink.

Skipper Looking at Me
I couldn't come any closer for a macro shot. The skipper looked straight at me when there was a slight movement, and then took off.

Joining Camera Critters, Newbie Party, and Macro Monday!

Zinnias are so pretty and do come in such an assortment of colors. Great shots of the flower and the little skipper. One wrong move and they are gone--you've got to work fast with the camera to get a shot of a butterfly. Mickie :)

This is my second time seeing a zinnia flower with folded petal. It's unique and pretty.

He does seem to be looking straight at you. They're sensible little things, aren't they.

Your flowers are lovely.

So pretty. I love Zinnia's. Mine weren't so pretty this year. The "skipper" is such a cute little creature, we have a lot of them around here too.
