Scenes from a Ditch, Part 1
The Skipper, which is obviously related to Butterflies and Moths, was a dramatic presence toward the end of my walk around the ditch. Perhaps my strongest memory of the walk. Skippers tend to be fuzzy and moth-like in overall appearance, but their antennae resembles those of butterflies but with little hooks at the ends. Also, they tend to be active in the daytime like most butterflies. The average person encountering one of these would tend to think it a moth.
