Butterfly Garden by Mike MacDonald


[Skipper picture] Skippers are small butterflies that lay eggs on grasses, especially timothy. They nectar on a variety of flowers including Agastache, Yarrow, Marigold, and clover. They have a moth-like body but are true butterflies. Moth antennae are feather like while butterflies have small hooks or knobs on theirs.
