A new species for me!

This was fun...I saw this winged creature and took it for a moth because of the body shape, but it is most assuredly not a moth. It's a Silver-spotted Skipper (Epargyreus clarus), the largest of the normally little skippers, which is why it took me so long to identify it.

He was shy so it took a while to sneak up on him. I got pretty close. You can't see the silver spot unless you get a side view.
