I’m used to seeing Fiery Skippers and Silver-spotted Skippers darting and dipping about in the front yard, but today was the first time I saw a Long-tailed Skipper sipping nectar from the Zinnias.
Doesn’t take much to figure out where it gets its name from, eh?
This butterfly is not bright or flashy, but I found it to be a soft and gentle sort of lovely.

These are lovely!
soft and gentle and lovely – I needed that this afternoon. Crazy work day! Thanks Kathy!
Wow, this butterfly seems like a mixture between butterfly and bird… It´s beautiful!!! 🌸🌞
It doesn’t scream, “Notice me!” like so many of the beautiful butterflies do, but it has its own sort of loveliness. 🙂
