Lots of Silver-spotted Skippers today. I like the way they look totally different with their wings open. They are so plain drab brown that way, unlike the striking pattern of the underwing. And the Red Admiral is almost the exact opposite, with a striking pattern above with a subtle almost dried leaf appearance from below. The Red-spotted Purple was on the beach sipping from the wet sand.
