I just love the umber skippers Poanes melane.
They appear in the garden in March and are around until late October.
The image above I took from an unusual angle.
Look at the skipper's proboscis as it sips nectar from the Siskiyou Wooly Sunflower blossom Eriophyllum lanatum 'Siskiyou'.
And what timing - see the tiny insect flying to the right of the skipper.
I didn't even notice the insect until I enlarged this shot.
