Skipper Silver Spotted

Sharing  a special visitor to my backyard spring garden. The Silver Spotted Skipper butterfly.

Chances are you’ve seen a silver-spotted skipper. With their brown wings and quick movement, they might not be the first butterflies you’d stop to observe. Take a closer look, and you’ll notice bands of orange on the forewings, and a silvery patch in the center of the hindwings. The silver-spotted skipper is the largest skipper in North America, with a wingspan of two to three inches.
