Coordinator notes: The Taxiles Skipper...a male basking or maybe raiting for a female (no...not waiting but raiting....resting in wait to fly off and investigate other passerbys to see if it is a female with which to mate...one of three more accurate terms for mate location behavior rather than "patroling").
