Skippers fly from one flower plant to another in short skips,
earning them this name, "Skipper". There are well over 3000
known varieties of this butterfly species. The Silver-Spotted
Skipper is one of the largest and most common kinds. Along with
it's distinctive colour pattern, it has a wider head with noticeably
down-curved antennae tips.
Bill captured these photos in our back yard the last time he was
home. This Skipper was resting on our Tiger Lillies. He seemed
almost as curious about Bill as Bill was about him. Bill tries to
capture these kind of photos knowing how much I love them.
We both like sharing them here with you!
