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.

I was on my way to photograph the sunset along the shores of Green Bay which requires me to head out through the country roads but I didn’t get all that far.  This splendid gray fox was ducking in and out of a few cars on a piece of property right in town.
