The Taxiles Skipper is a species of grass skipper found in North and Central America in valleys, grassy fields, and forest openings. Weedy grasses are the host plants. Caterpillars are light brown, striped brown lengthwise along back and sides, and dotted with brown, as well. This one is from my archives, from a walk on a forest edge in northern Arizona.

Skippers are such charming little butterflies! And so unexpected — I was so surprised by their unusual wing shape that they prompted me to pay much more attention to butterflies in general. For which I am grateful!
