images of fiery skipper??? not sure
just wanted to share a few more images, hope you don’t mind. all these are from last summer (2005). i think the butterfly is a Fiery Skipper?? (longtail???). anyway, it is sipping lunch from my white Heliotrope. thanks for letting me share!
The Fiery Skipper is one species in the group known as Grass Skippers, subfamily Hesperiinae. They are distinguished by the position of the wings while resting, which your photo nicely illustrates. We have a difficult time distinguising individual species in this subfamily
