The Peck’s skipper is a fairly common skipper butterfly in New Jersey. Skippers are notoriously hard to identify because many of them look very similar. This little guy darted right in front of me. He’s soaking up the late afternoon sun. This was taken in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ. I used my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 85mm macro lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
