Delaware Skipper (Anatrytone logan)

As you go from the mountains to the coast in NC, this species goes from rare to locally fairly common. It has two broods in NC, early summer and mid fall.

Delaware Skippers are generally bright orange below with no other obvious markings. Note also the orange fringes. They nectar on a variety of flowers, like the Verbena below.
