Butterfly sighting

Location: my property in the town of Seneca
Wood County

I decided to spend just a few minutes in my oregano patch after I got home from work. Because I didn't expect to see very much on the few remaining blossoms, I broke my ABC butterfly watching rule - Always Bring Camera. I missed the chance to get photos of my first-ever Crossline Skipper. I ran back in and grabbed my camera just in time to get one more quick look, but the skipper was gone before I could get zoomed in. I spent quite a bit of time searching with no luck.
