Zabulon skipper, female (Poanes zabulon)

Zabulon skipper, female (Poanes zabulon)

This lovely little skipper was first described from here in Georgia - in the early 1800's. Males & females look like different species! The golden males are also seen much more often since they like to pose in prominent spots. This frosty little chestnut female was a showstopper in my garden yesterday.

In a year when even Fiery skippers are scarce, I had 3 interesting skippers visit yesterday - the other 2 I haven't yet Id'd. If anyone wants to help - I'll try to post one of them tonight.
