well I got a very curious newbie yesterday-- it's all speckled like a skipper, but eyes and antennae like lycaenidae and fortunately likes to be photographed... but skippers-- nope they skip. this is really an outstanding image.

Thank you, everyone, for the kind and gracious remarks! Sorry to be so long in responding - was out of pocket. This particular skipper normally does not light for very long. I've chased it for weeks and finally was in the right place at the right time! Mike
