The Other Skipper

Darker Color Skipper
As I have mentioned in my Fiery Skipper post, this skipper has a much darker color to its body, but is is just as little as the other one. The darker color skipper wouldn't come any where closer to the white coneflowers either.

This Way

You probably can guess by now that I have a collection of 100 photos of these little beautiful skippers! It is very rare to see butterflies and skippers in my garden as I live "smackaroo" in the middle of a busy city.

Pretty Me
I think he/she is just so gorgeous to see, especially when the under wings are shown. I am not quite sure if it is the Fiery Skipper or not, I just love seeing them around on my flowers.

1) Types of Skippers

2) Skippers of North America

This reminds me about the skipper who thought I was a flower.

This looks just like your Fiery Skipper in your previous post. The markings are almost identical & so are the angles these little ones forced you to use to capture their beauty! Wonderful captures again.

I live in the city too. I planted flowers specifically to attract butterflies because they so rarely stop. Had tons of them flit about and a few that even stopped long enough for me to shoot.

Your skipper pictures are so cute! I only saw a skipper one time and it wouldn't sit still for a second.
