skipper butterfly. They are the ugly step sisters of the butterfly world - not nearly as pretty as the flowers they hang out on.
There are 3500 varieties of skippers and heaven only knows which one this is.
Some skippers are flat winged [like regular butterflies] and some are folded wing, like this one. The forewings are held at a 45 degree angle to the others. Very distinctive.
We have loads of these out here and if we ever figure out which ones we have, I'll let you know.
