Ahoy There….It’s a Small Skipper!!

In the fields behind my house I found a rather lovely butterfly feasting upon nectar in this pretty flower.

I tried to quietly walk through the stinging nettles without letting out screams of pain as my bare legs (shorts….it was hot!) were brushed by the aforementioned nettles! I thought that I had probably blown getting a good photo as I tripped forward and nearly dropped my camera! But no!! Beautiful brown butterfly stayed put and let me take this photo…..

Apparently this is a Small Skipper who also goes by the name 'Thymelicus Sylvestris' or Sylvester to his friends!
