The Zabulon Skipper, Poanes zabulon, is a small, golden chunky butterfly. They love to find a sunny spot at the edge of the woods or near a road, and sit quietly with spread wings. Their range is, very roughly, east of the Rocky Mountains but doesn’t appear to be numerous in the most northern states.
