Lady & The Skippers

The local butterflies love Lantana.  One species or another flutters around the blooms consistently throughout the day.   If I were a butterfly, I'd probably like the bright, colorful blooms too.  

The American Lady allowed me to get fairly close while I photographed her.  What a beauty she is!  I believe the small yellow and black butterflies are Fiery Skippers.  I have difficulty with identifying the Skippers- there's so many of them that look closely similar.  

I hope you've had a good week so far- thanks for dropping in!


  1. Gorgeous photos! Enjoy your day.

  2. Hello Susan, gorgeous butterfly captures. And the Lantana is beautiful. Have a happy day!

  3. The American Lady is a beauty and somewhat similar to our migrant Painted Lady that I saw today (pics still to be posted).

    Whilst we don't have your numbers of different Skippers there are two that are so similar it is impossible to tell them apart without a magnifying glass!
