Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Butterfly was perched on a leaf in a prairie patch near mixed woodland on a warm, sunny day. It appeared to be feeding but there was no flower present. An Ottoe Skipper was nectaring on a Liatris flower nearby.

Coordinator notes: Looks like a male H. ottoe to me. Skippers are tough without seeing the underside of the wings, so not 100% sure. Fiery skipper's wing margin should have a more toothed appearance.
