Male Fiery Skipper on Chrysanthemum

15 10 2010

Skipper butterflies are very common in Virginia. I was able to identify this one with the help of Richard K. Walton’s “Skippers of the Northeast” website here. Click on the photos and you’ll see excellent videos, filmed by Walton, to help you identify different types of skippers. I photographed this one dining in a huge bank of ‘Country Girl’ Chrysanthemums at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia.
