by Julie Lavender
With hints of springtime headed our way – and even a few days warm enough to qualify as an early southern summer – I’m beginning to spot a few butterflies and skippers during the daylight hours and moths in the late evenings.
For some of the beautiful winged creatures, I ponder their identity.
I can usually recognize the difference between the common butterflies and moths, but the skippers give me trouble.
