August 15, 2009. The skippers are back! For a few weeks now, the garden has been aflutter with these fuzzy butterflies. Not as glamorous as their larger, more colorful brethren, but they make up for it in sheer numbers, pluck, and airspeed. Most common around here are the silver-spotted skipper and Peck's skipper.
