Any suggestions for a title?
When I was a new grownup, ( 🙂 ) and a new volunteer in the world of prairie restoration, the flowers and creatures I was being introduced to made lasting impressions on me. One pairing that was absolutely iconic to me was silver-spotted skippers flocking to the stand of monarda fistulosa in a small restored prairie in Peoria. I just never saw one without the other. When my family moved up here near the Wisconsin border I never saw the skippers. I missed their flash~ isn’t it a striking looking butterfly? Then last spring we vacationed in North Carolina. I was absolutely stunned to see this fellow getting nectar on a grape hyacinth! I was able to get a good photo of him but when push came to shove, I had to paint him on his “proper” nectar source.
