STOPS ALONG THE WAY

LEAST SKIPPER BUTTERFLY (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Skipper  - 2

There are many varieties of skippers. The least skipper is the smallest of Ontario’s butterflies (17-26mm or approx. 1 inch). I spotted this butterfly among some wild flowers that bordered a suburban bike path. It’s a pleasant area to walk as the city has let the natural setting flourish beside a pedestrian and cycling route. I took my 105mm macro lens with me that day hoping to get an opportunity for some insect shots. I was happy I did.

  4. That second photo is great. Skippers are very difficult sometimes to determinate, specialy the once you see in other countries. In the Netherlands we only have a few different skippers but they belong to my favorites

  8. These photos are really great, Belinda. You can see that little fellow is very busy with his proboscis, testing the flavours. I wonder if he’s smiling.
