While at the Franklin D. Roosevelt historic site, I visited the garden area in search of butterflies. I used my macro lens in hopes to photograph some of the smaller ones.
One of them caught my eye to – a bright orange skipper hopping from flower to flower. There were actually a few of them, so I sat down in the grass near the flowers motionless thinking they might come closer that way.
Sure enough, one landed right in front of me and I went to town with my camera. It was well worth melting in the sun for (90s with humidity). When I researched the photos at home, I identified the species as a fiery skipper!
