Male Peck’s skippers perch in sunny open areas to await receptive females, and courtship takes place throughout the day. I often see pairs “skipping” through my yard together. It is quite a sight to see. It can also be a tough sight to keep up with because these little butterflies are awfully quick for their size. This handsome fella perched with the sun at his back and just above my eye level to survey my back yard for a mate. He stayed put for a minute or so before he darted off seeking amore. I took this with my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 105mm macro lens. It was taken in Rockaway, NJ USA.
