Fiery Skipper, top view by rhoing

Fiery Skipper, top view

When I first photographed this species several years ago, I only ever got the side (ventral) view, so I couldn't understand why they're called "Fiery." Once I was able to get a top (dorsal) view, then I understood. » Recent post, side view

ID’ed at BAMONA as Hylephila phyleus or “Fiery Skipper.”
