Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge was an excellent Mississippi destination for photographing butterflies. This May 2010 day did not disappoint.
Poanes yehl is a wetland skipper and that’s where we found it, at the edge of wet southern woods.
It took a bit of research for me, unaccustomed as I am to southern U.S. butterfly species.
As with most skippers this Yehl is an active nectarer.
Mississippi abounded with wildlife and Yazoo NWR kept me busy with Oohs and Aahs!
