Three-spotted Skipper Butterfly Cymaenes tripunctus
Three Spotted Skipper Butterfly
By the time I got done chasing this tiny Three-spotted Skipper Butterfly in circles in a field I was completely dizzy. I'd crouch for a photo, and midway down nearly fall as I twisted to look over my shoulder to watch where it landed next, and next, and next... It's one energetic little butterfly!

It did pause briefly on this Porterweed to have a sip of nectar. I can't believe that tiny bit of sugar water provided the little critter with the energy it took to buzz about like it did.
