    • Isn’t it pretty! It’s the first one I’ve ever seen. It looked like a piece of jewelry when it first landed.

  4. It’s a beautiful creature. I’ve become rather fond of skippers generally, but this one is especially pretty and colorful.

    • I’m very fond of them too but I can’t recall seeing this color before. It was just radiant.

  6. I don’t know if we have that kind here but our Fiery Skippers look pretty similar.

    • While trying to ID this one I looked at several that were quite similar. They are really pretty!
