Thanks for the compliments. This butterfly was shy... I got too close and he flew away.

Thanks GT. He was hard at work until I got too close and scared him off :(
Thanks Deida. S/He is called a Fiery Skipper, if I've identified him correctly. There is a wonderful site that someone (sorry I forget who it was) here turned me on to. A great butterfly site for identifying these winged beauties. Here's the link:
