Skipper butterflies are in the family Hesperiidae and there are more than 3.500 species worldwide. Approximately 275 species are here in North America. Most are usually orange, brown and gray with a chunky body, large eyes, and short antennae with hooked clubs.
Most Skippers are small but some are medium in size and a few have iridescent colors. The medium size skipper shown on the right is the Silver-Spotted Skipper. Trying to identify the small skippers can be a daunting task so I will leave that for the experts.
They have a long proboscis which is used to sip nectar from a variety of flowers but some also sip from bird droppings for nutrients. It is fun to watch skipper butterflies dart from flower to flower as if to be skipping; hence their name.
