Fiery Skipper

I am happy to learn that this cute little guy is indeed a butterfly (not a moth).  And not surprisingly, he likes lantana plants, which is where I often see them.  Apparently the lantana have nectar at the bottom of a long narrow tube, and the Skipper sucks the nectar up through his tubular mouth part.

❤ Learning though photography ❤
