A most entertaining half hour watching the skippers on this fairly large bed of purple flowers. They were very active. My challenge: How many skippers could I capture in one photo? Answer (to my disappointment): Two. A number of times I saw five skippers at the same time with the naked eye but was unable to capture more than two in one photo.
