A Zabulon skipper (Lon zabulon) is a smallish butterfly but average as far as skippers go. I consider it to be thumbnail size. I come across one in central Pennsylvania about every other year, but this season was different since I managed to photograph both a male and a female Zabulon.
The male is brightly colored.
The female Zabulon skipper may not be as colorful as the male but is very distinctive.
The convenient part about photographing both male and female Zabulon skippers is that they both visited my backyard.
