Hi all! Have to post and run today. My day is filled with training sessions out of town. Can't believe school is about to start. This is an Uncus Skipper that was enjoying the Salvia earlier this year. I've seen a good number of these small Skippers but very few larger butterflies. Hope you enjoy it and have a good day. We are going to be quite warm at 100F again. Sigh

Hi all!  My image today is to promote another new Collection called Skipper Sightings.  Love these little guys, they seem quite social as I notice several of my images of them have at least a couple together on the same flower.  I have yet to see any this year but hopefully they will be around soon.  I caught these 2 enjoying a Zinnia bloom on a past summer.  Hope you enjoy them and check out the Collection and have a great day!

Well, I'd like a day that didn't start out so hectic one of these days.  Sigh.  I wanted something lovely and calming due to that and the cloudy day we are having.  How about a couple of Skippers on a Marigold bloom from last Autumn.  :-)  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Hi all from the land of 10,000 lakes.  :-)  It's hot up here too.  I was hoping for cooler.  A busy day with some large scale steam activity so posting late today.  This is an image from last summer of a Skipper enjoying a Marigold bloom.  Hope you enjoy it and are having a great day!

#springfevertuesday +SpringFeverTuesday by +Vesna Krnjic

Hi all!  We have snow on the way this week supposedly so this theme was perfect to play in for me today as I am not looking forward to that.  This is a Skipper that I captured on some Wild Garlic blooms.  Skippers make up about 1/3 of the Butterfly family I read just recently.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

I heard that +Marilou Aballe has a birthday today!  As I know she loves skippers as much as I do I thought I'd share today's blog post and that it was posted with her in mind.  Hope you are having a very Happy Birthday Marilou!

Morning all!  These little guys have been very abundant this summer.  Have gotten a lot of shots of these little Skippers I could probably do a shot a day of them.  :-)  I think these are both Uncus Skippers.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Morning all!  We will see if this works but I think I figured out how to get rid of tags you don't want because they don't apply.  Let it go to the Tagging step and then close the ones it chooses that make no sense.
I got this yesterday afternoon when I got home from work.  I was taking Stella D'oro lily shots and there were these 2 Skippers +Marilou Aballe that were feeding on them.  I was able to capture a few shots of them and this is one.  Hope you enjoy it and have a very good day!
