Artist's Description

Grass skippers are the largest family of skippers with nearly 3000 species worldwide. Skippers are named for their rapid, erratic flight. Skippers differ from the true butterflies in their proportionately larger bodies, smaller wings, and hooked antennae, among many other structural differences. Skippers can be the most difficult butterfly species to identify; their markings are maddeningly similar. I’m fairly certain, after a bit of research, that this is a male fiery skipper. He wasn’t skipping away and posed for several photos. The recently cool Jersey weather may be slowing them down a bit. This was taken in my front yard in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera.
