Finding a Wetland Skipper Butterfly at the Edge of a Wet Southern Woods

Skipper Butterfly at Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge, MS

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!
