Silver-spotted Skipper

Another critter I photographed at Florence River Park, this member of the skipper family of butterflies ["Skippers have large eyes, short antennae (often with hooked clubs), stout bodies, and three pairs of walking legs"] was perched near their wetland area. Though the descriptions of this Silver-spotted Skipper state that the patch on it's hindwing is silver or silver-white from which it gets it's name, it looked whitish in the field just as it does in this pic.
