Lovely little umber skipper


Umber skippers are very small butterflies, that could almost be mistaken for moths. They visit our garden very often, usually in pairs. They flit around, visiting nearly every plant, and don't seem to have particularly outstanding features.

But close up I think they are pretty, you could almost say they are cute, with their fuzzy golden colored heads and dark spots on their wings. The umber skipper in the photo is sitting on a purple butterfly bush flower spearhead.
