So Many Skippers so little time.

This summer we have experienced Skippers both large and small.

Some perched nectering on flowers and others on grasses yet each a delight with their big round eyes. Which by the way are all the better to see they prying photographer attempting to sneak up and photograph or just a good look at this wonderful little guys.

Although most quickly flew away we were able to photograph or two along the way.

Now a few weeks have past and the abundance of these little creatures has declined. Skipper season is short but definitely sweet.

A bit bit like summer don’t you think?

Happy Friday and have a great weekend.
