The Fiery Skipper Butterfly

Butterflies have been far and few between this year. Yesterday, our backyard was visited by two fiery skipper butterflies. They are about an inch long and often hard to spot because of their small size. However, a fiery skipper appeared to be stepping on brightly colored flower petals–that made for a nice shot.

I still await the arrival of the monarchs, due in early October.
