My first sighting this year of a Fiery Skipper butterfly Hylephila phyleus in the garden this year.
This is a female.
Earlier in the season, which would be now, these butterflies have more spots on them than the ones born later in the season, around September. And they are rarely common before July, which is why I'm surprised to see this one now.
Females are mostly brown above with a buff pattern, while the males are a bright golden yellow.
