Still Mining the Archive

 Sharing a few old photos as I sort for my book.  This critter is a Skipper.  Has features of butterflies and features of moths and a few of its own.  Click on it for a closer view.  Note the hooks at the ends of the antennae.  Sometimes these gather in large numbers on certain flowers.  I saw lots gathering on Rabbitbrush last summer and into the fall
 Quite a drama on the way up Mt. Hough.  A Crab Spider snags a Carpenter Bee.  The spider won.
A beetle I haven't identified sitting on Arnica.  On these very cold mornings, this photo makes me feel warm.
