What Kind of Skipper Butterfly Do You Think this is?

Skipper Butterfly at Asheville, NC

Of course there is no such species of skipper butterflies. There are many, many species of skippers in the southeastern United States. This nifty example crossed our path in Asheville, North Carolina.

A large skipper, it’s dorsal and ventral wing surfaces can be seen in this image. Asheville was a beautiful city and was home to many, many photogenic butterflies.
