my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318

I believe there were 2 different Long-tailed Skippers in the yard based on their tails(see pictures) One was in the front yard and one in the back yard just minutes apart. I've never seen a LTS nectaring on a Canna in the past. Brazilian Skipper laying eggs again and eggs can be seen in the image with skipper. Ocola Skippers back in the yard.
