My Lantana has been covered with Fiery Skippers lately, busy sipping nectar in the summer sun. They don’t seem to mind the near hundred degree temperatures in the least.
These button-eyed butterflies are fast, flighty, and rarely sit still for more than a second.
They are only about the size of a nickel, so their small size and constant motion makes them a bit challenging to photograph. Let’s just say they fly far faster than I focus!
Still, they are lovely against the bright flower petals and it is a delight to watch them flit about.
