Coordinator notes: This is an excellent photo of orange-headed roadside-skipper. Orange-edged would be very exciting indeed, but the individual clearly has cream-colored edges and an orange head. this species is part of New Mexico's resident butterfly fauna in ponderosa pine savanna habitats, including the Capitan and Sacramento Mountains. Thanks for submitting!
