Common Checkered Skipper
I photographed this “Common Checkered Skipper” on 4/10/08 here in Charlotte, NC. Sometimes it’s hard to catch this little butterfly with its wings in the ‘up’ position. I managed to get a picture of it. I tried many times last fall but without much success.
Thanks for the great contribution of the Common Checkered Skipper, Pyrgus communis. Curious readers can get more information on BugGuide.
