This butterfly is small with a fast skipping flight, with an almost blurred, wing beat, so it’s not likely you will find an image of the orange skipperling in flight. In looking for butterflies to photograph, currently skippers are the most common here in the desert. Although they are considered butterflies, the traits of large eyes and short antennae are different.

Nature will bear the closest inspection.

She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf,

and take an insect view of its plain.

— Henry David Thoreau
