I have never spotted a Fiery Skipper until today--I did find him and scratched my head.  
They were not seen in these parts until a few years ago--a late season uncommon migrant. 
It seems we will see more with the climate changing and they can be very abundant in 
other areas.  I am not a super skipper fan as many seem to be LBJ's----official 
designation for "little brown jobs."   This one is a tad better and I did my 
best on the processing.
