|I'm not the only one who likes zinnia flowers. They really attract skipper butterflies. Click to enlarge.
|Skipper butterflies are sometimes mistaken for moths. They are small and usually drab.
|At rest they hold their wings open and angled up or spread in various jaunty ways.
|By butterfly standards they have stocky bodies and big heads.
|The name skipper comes from their habit of skipping rapidly between perches.
|So plant some zinnias. You'll get skippers!
