Silver Spotted Skipper

Silver Spotted Skipper Butterfly 

The silver-spotted skipper is the largest of the skippers and is most commonly found during the months of June, July, and August in Wisconsin.

They enjoy collecting nectar in open fields of flowers.  The skipper is easy to identify.


It has a brown body, with a few white spots and an orangish yellow band through its wing.

Just Plugging Along

A snail just plugging along. In order to reach a goal you have to start somewhere and slowly work toward achieving it. I love watching snails because they move so slowly, but never seem to worry about the pace they are traveling at. They always seem to be focusing their attention on the journey and not the destination. 

The image has one of my signature textures added to it.

Eastern Columbine Wisconsin Wildflower

In the spring, I wander around the woods, meadows and walking paths for wildflowers. Today, I found the Eastern Columbine Wisconsin Wildflower.


Plant Characteristics:
Columbine grows to a height of 1-2 feet in partial shade and in areas of filtered sun. Tiny, black seeds ripen at various times within the flowers life cycle.

Collecting Seeds
The seeds can be collected by hand from August to October by gently tapping the old flowering head. Seeds can be dried in open paper bags for about two weeks. You should store the dry seed in sealed, plastic bags and keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to plant them. Seeds will stay viable with this method for 3 years.
