I was looking at some butterfly photos I took earlier this Summer and found these two that we’re particularly spectacular when I first saw them but now that I’ve looked more closely at the photos I see they have some interesting marks on them. Do you know what their names are?

Crescent

Dear Laura,
One of your butterflies is a Crescent, but we are unsure of the species as so many look so similar, as you can verify on BugGuide.  We believe your other butterfly is a Skipper, possibly Horace’s Duskywing based on this BugGuide image.
