Brown Skipper Butterflies


butterfly08

This one I’m not quite sure about other than they’re Skipper Butterflies! I think the top one is a Sleepy Duskywing but the colors are darker than the one in the book. The bottom one was definitely different and dark in color like the Common Sootywing but I’m not shure on this one either. The image was taken in a large field overrun with dandelions in May of 2012.

    I d’ont know this lepidoptera but he seems to have nice dark colour.

  2. I use a reference book when I’m not sure about a butterfly or moth, but sometimes it’s very difficult to tell. Skippers are one of those confusing groups! Nice photo!
