Skipper on Bee Balm

I don’t have an identification for this little guy yet but I do know it is a Skipper. It’s the only one I noticed while exploring up at Schultz Pass and he was gone in a flash so I’m happy to have at least one shot. Canon 180mm Macro lens. ISO 400, 1/1000 sec, f/10. Probably my favorite lens.

Common Sootywing

I went searching for butterflies, skippers, etc, on Mingus Mountain near Jerome yesterday. Fabulous day but it was cloudy and windy so the species were few and far between. Here is one lucky shot for me since the tiny daisy was swaying back and forth. The one inch Sootywing was common to my fellow butterfly hunters but new to me (Common Sootywing). Of course, most of them are 🙂
