Doing What Comes Naturally

Late summer seems to be skipper season, and My Florida Backyard is full of Long Tailed Skippers. We caught this female laying eggs on some type of legume plant that's growing along the fence.

For more information on Long Tailed Skippers and their caterpillars, see our previous posts:


  1. nice shots! Those skippers are the unsung butterfly heroes if you ask me.

  2. Those are great shots. Whenever I see a skipper, I say outloud, Hey Skipper ... I talk to other critters too, I just can't seem to help myself. :-)

    Enjoy all the 'flying flowers' in your gardens.
