Common Checkered-Skipper (Pyrgus communis)
October 30, 2007

Back to the same clump of asters today, but not quite as good as it was on the 21st. Still fair numbers of sulphurs and skippers. Here's a photo of one of the Common Checkered-Skippers which are always so much easier to find at the end of the flight season instead of during the middle of the summer.

The bait pulled in a Gray Comma, but I didn't get a second chance at the Goatweed Leafwing.

Hi Donna, great shot of the skipper. We still have a fair number of sulphers and skippers here in Alabama- but the time for them to be here is quickly drawing to a close.
