Fiery Skipper Butterfly
Skippers are small to medium size butterflies characterized by fast, erratic fight. Skippers have short, hairy bodies and small wings. More than 3,000 species of Skippers exist around the world.
Skippers are difficult for the amateur to identify, with their drab colors and fast flight. As an introduction to the Skipper Family, we are showing images of a common Fiery Skipper below.
