BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

SKIPPER

27 Comments

The skipper butterfly is a favourite of mine for its beauty and for the way it positions itself on grass and reeds, almost making the photograph. Skippers are most numerous in mid summer but I’ve seen them earlier and later as well. This past May, as I walked along a path that cut through a field, I saw one, then another and within several feet upwards of 50 feeding on wildflowers. They must have very recently emerged. What a delight that was!

  4. Very nice pic! 🙂 I like them a lot too! They are not as flighty or skittish as some other butterfly species can be!
