Skippers everywhere (exaggeration)

Milkweed skippers

I found a milkweed just beginning to bloom, a plant in the vanguard of the blooming, and covered up with skippers.

Vetch skippers

I found this vetch with plenty of skipper-attention.

Basil skipper

Something aka some critters/insects have been eating my basil. This skipper is the only visitor I’ve spotted; however, I don’t think of skippers as basil-eaters. Mystery….

Swamp watch

Tar-gravel fixing of holes in the perpetually patched blacktop through the swamp. It’s a bumpy ride.
