Hylephila phyleus (Drury, 1773)
I learned something new today! This is a Skipper. I never heard of such a thing. Well I must admit the first thing I thought of was "The Skipper and Mary Ann", ya know, Gilligan's Island??? Anyway, I took this photo of a Skipper on the Lantana in M and I's front yard but had no idea what it was. So I email the photo to the world renowned "Bug Lady" who told me straight away it was a Skipper! She made me look it up though and I think I have identified it correctly as a Fiery Skipper. You can learn more about the Fiery Skipper here.
Thanks for stopping by,
