Silver Spotted Skipper

Dear Rose,
This is a Silver Spotted Skipper, and we are posting your image because it illustrates the namesake silver markings.  We posted an open winged view of a Silver Spotted Skipper yesterday.  Though Skippers are often thought of as having characteristics of both moths and butterflies, they are classified as butterflies.
