Delaware Skipper (Anatrytone logan)

These beautiful bright orange skippers are exquisite with the dark pattern outlining their veins on the upper-side of their wings. They are quick fliers that can often be observed close to the ground looking for potential mates. They prefer to visit white and pink flowers and are more common than other skippers in yards and gardens. They are a perfect guest to welcome into your landscaping.

Subfamily: Grass Skipper (Hesperiinae)
