Butterfly weather

The mornings can be quite cool with temperatures in the 60's, but once the sun is out and it's warm, the butterflies are out and about.

Here a Common Checkered skipper Pyrgus communis is sipping nectar from a Cosmos bipinnatus blossom.

This is the first time I've observed one of these skippers in cosmos blossoms, and it spent a good 15 minutes on these blossoms.

The skipper has its head buried in the blossom.
