    Amazing colors the fly has.

    I think that is a moth of some type. Not sure of the bio name tho LOLOL..

    Nice shots
     
  3. Wonderful shots. I don't know the name of the moth but I too took some images very similar to this so will be waiting for the ID.

    The first two pics are definitely of a butterfly--a folded wing skipper. Not certain beyond that, but perhaps close to a twin spot skipper or little glassy wing skipper should be in the ballpark (left field perhaps, but nevertheless in the ballpark). Hope this helps. Nice pics, all three.
     
  5. Jerry is right. It is a member of the Hesperidae Family of Skipper Butterflies.

    Use the web and type in 'Butterflies of North America.' Their are some excellent sites there, especially this one. As I do not know your state (CT) then I cannot help any more. www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/distr/lepid/bflyusa/bflyusa.htm
