The Wonderful Eufala Skipper

Saturday, August 24, 2013

As I was about to go inside, this very unusual skipper came resting right on my path. It had such a dark brown color that it took me a while to realize it was a skipper. I am used to see fiery skippers in my part of the world, not this one!

I uploaded the photos onto my laptop and searched to identify it. It is called Eufala skipper and can easily tell by the white dots on its wings. The body is completely brown and the under wings has lighter tone of brown.

Nature really never cease to amaze me! Living in this area for over 11 years, I learned to recognize new birds, new butterflies, new skippers, and new bees every year! This wonderful Eufala skipper was quite a surprising joy!

Linking up with Camera Critters! Registered & Protected

  5. I haven't seen a butterfly yet in India. Of course, we've been having monsoon rains....finally, the sun is shining.

    My Camera Critters was about the "sacred" cows.

  6. I would have thought it is a moth.
    Good to know about this.
