This is who I was photographing the other day when I came upon the White-Belted Ringtail in my last post. The Skippers are all over the place now. They’re tiny, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. This particular one is a Fiery Skipper.

I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out what kinds of Skippers these are. There are 99 types of skippers native to Arizona on this website I consult for butterfly identification and I just can’t figure out what these are for sure.
