Surprise Skipper Visit

This is why I keep my camera with me all the time. I was out on the deck watching the bluebirds and the hummingbirds. I looked down and saw a skipper butterfly perched on my lantana blooms. Was so surprised that he stayed there long enough for me to get his photo. They usually are fluttering around so quickly it is a challenge to get a photo. I got lucky with this one. He was enjoying my blooms, and I enjoyed his visit. These little brown butterflies are very common but I still enjoy seeing them appear in my gardens.

  1. Great capture! That’s awesome that you were able to get a shot of the butterfly. I always have my phone with me and for the most part that serves as my camera. I don’t know if I’d be quick enough to get a shot of a butterfly though!

  2. That’s a beautiful photo, Carol. Unfortunately, I don’t keep my camera with my all the time. But I really should, as it’s usually the case I see something lovely when I am unable to take a picture!
