Butterfly sighting

Location: Mosquito Hill Nature Center
Outagamie County

One of the best butterfly days that I have had in years. The grass skippers were everywhere. Many more varieties than what I document here but they would not open their wings. Mike - there were two distinct skipper groupings. One was a group of Delaware. The other flew slower and more "heavy". Finally one of these opened their wings. I have included that picture. Your thoughts?
