Fitz Clarke – Fiery Skipper

Fitz Clarke – “Fiery Skipper” – “The photo of this tiny female Fiery Skipper butterfly (wingspan only 1.2”) was taken at The Landing’s Sparrow Field Pollinator Garden Berm. It captures the extended proboscis, three legs from thorax and ventral view. I spent 30 minutes on a portable stool studying the nectaring insects on this nectar source in order to better understand the ecological relationships between our plants and wildlife.”
