Silver-spotted Skipper - Epargyreus clarus by 


These are a larger member of the skipper butterfly family, and they are one of he most easily recognized because of the silver spot on their hind wings. They hang around fields, gardens, and forest edges where they find sunny places to bask and flowers to sip nectar from.

This photo was taken July 13, 2009, in Green Lane, PA.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
