Juba Skipper
Hesperia juba

Observation date: June 10, 2017
Submitted by: JessieS
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was a bright sunny day. I recently planted daisies and yarrow. This butter fly was feeding from both flowers. It moved quickly, darting from flower to flower. It didn't seem to view me as much of a threat, it came back several times and allowed me to take many photos with my DSLR.
