Butterflies are divided into five major families: Skippers, Gossamer Wings, Brush-Foots, Swallowtails, and Sulpurs/Whites. Skippers have stout bodies, smaller wings, and usually hooked antennae. This skipper can be seen locally in August and September. The local host plants are Bluestem grasses and it feeds on Blazing Star flowers (although it is sitting on a Goldenrod). They are known to be wary, but this one was fearless - or maybe just sleepy, as it was early morning.
