|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|LARGE SKIPPER (OCHLODES SYLVANUS)|
A small widespread butterfly with a darting flight. Upperwings orange with brown margins with a few pale orange spots.
Male Large Skippers are most often found perching in a prominent, sunny position, usually on a large leaf at a boundary between taller and shorter vegetation, awaiting passing females. Females are less conspicuous, though both sexes may be seen feeding on flowers, Bramble being a favourite. Males have thick black line through centre of fore-wing. Undersides have faint orange spots unlike the bright silver spots in Silver-spotted Skipper.

I haven't spotted any skippers yet here in Ohio. Spring is still slowly advancing and there have been only a handful of butterflies out and about in my area as of yet.
I see you have captured this beautiful Skipper sitting on a very pretty flower. Nicely focused and displaying excellent detail. I like the way we can clearly see it enjoying some nectar. Nice clean BG and composed in an attractive manner.
