Yuma Skipper
Ochlodes yuma

yuma skipper in Utah
The Yuma Skipper is a species that lives in the Southwestern US and I just happened to find this shot in some photos
 I took  in 2008.  This skipper was visiting some tiny flowers on a plant at Springs Park in St. George,  Utah. 
According to Butterflies and Moths of North America, phragmites are the reeds of choice for Yuma
 Skipper caterpillars.  © Carol Davis, 10-18-2008
