Sandhill Skipper  (three photos)
Polites sabuleti


Polites sabuleti
I saw this sweet thing flitting from flower to flower in my lawn morning glories right after I had
 thought I'd better
spray them.  So much for that idea.  I think this one was straight out
of the
chrysalis because it's so perfect.  © Carol Davis 6-24-2017

I had my camera with me - which is a miracle itself - and as I made my way over to take a
photo, the skipper
flew off and landed in my apple tree on top of a leaf.  Thank you! Don't
you love that little punk hairdo?  © Carol Davis 6-24-2017


sandhill skipper
This little skipper was in my garden for about 20 seconds - just long enough for me to get this one shot. From
 the wing pattern I discerned that it was a Sandhill Skipper - a new species for me.  © Carol Davis 5-29-2017
