Finally, able to get a picture of the Fiery Skipper. Imagine of Summer Azure & Easter-tailed Blue I was trying to show difference in size with the azure larger than the ETB though size is relative. 5 sets of mating Monarchs the past 2 days including one that was most probably tagged by Kathy Horn here on 9/11. Male Sachems mobbing each female that is here.
