Fiery Skipper

Oh I love this little skipper when they came around to visit! So tiny, and so fast in their flitting! If it didn't stop, I would not be able to take any photo at all. This little skipper is called Fiery, and I didn't make up that name. I looked up on Google.

This Way

He/she was so pretty, taunting and teasing me all afternoon, but I wouldn't give up without a dozen photos. This Fiery skipper had a lighter tan color than other skippers that hang around my garden.

Beautiful Profile of Fiery Skipper
This Fiery skipper preferred the white coneflowers more than the marigold flowers. The deeper color skippers seem to only like the marigold. What do you think? Isn't he/she so adorable looking?
