I collected butterflies and moths as a kid. My Dad was a submariner, and he would bring me specimens from places he visited. My interest in them continues, but now I only photograph them. But I recognize most families of them still, and have traveled widely around north America, as well as 30 other countries. Skippers are an interesting group, with some moth-like antenna, rather than the slim, bulbous end of antenna on must butterflies. They are classed as butterflies, but they are a unique group.

You have a very interesting history, Steve! I’m fairly new to all of this! We get a lot of monk skippers around here, but this one was new to me. Thanks so much for sharing your good info!
