Silver-spotted Skipper (Epargyreus clarus)
Skippers resemble a combination of butterflies and moths. They are a dull, dark color yet fly during the day. They have knobbed antennae, but with a little point at the end. They are fast, intense fliers and look as if they skip from flower to flower. The Silver-spotted Skipper prefers almost any color of flower except yellow. These interesting creatures can be found in almost the entire United States, and are welcome visitors to any butterfly garden.
