Skippers are so hard for me to even try to ID..and they never sit long.. Great catch...

I think they are called Skippers for a reason. Maybe they should be called 'flitters'. MB

Thanks for the photo. I've been trying to identify a butterfly. It's not this one but it's close enough that I think it's in the same family.
