Common Checkered Skipper


Taken with iPhone

A common checkered skipper, perching on Texas Ageratum, one of the great performers of the garden, can’t recommend the native ageratums highly enough.   (He looked much more blue and white out in the wild–I think there’s probably a sheen or something on the wings that doesn’t photograph terribly well.)  A very handsome little butterfly, and either brave or uninterested in the large primate chasing it around the flowers with a cameraphone.
