Dotted Roadside-Skipper Butterfly (Amblyscirtes eos)
These dark skippers are fun to watch as they rapidly skip from flower to flower in search of nectar. The males will often perch on flat areas or fly up slopes in search of females.
These dark brown/black beauties have a lovely white fringe on the edges of their wings, except where there are veins, there are dark patches. The Dotted Roadside-Skippers can easily be seen around prairies and roadsides that are covered with grasses and will be a welcome visitor into your grassy lawns.
