Peck’s Skipper

A new year means time to organize the past year. This photo of a Peck’s skipper is from late September 2015. These skippers feed on grasses and overwinter as larvae or pupae. They fly late into autumn as there is plenty of larval host food and some nectar available. Males like to perch in sunny open areas. These skippers are often found by the edges of trails in open, grassy areas.
