Missing The Good Stuff

The Silver-spotted Skipper almost never visits yellow flowers but favors blue, red, pink, purple, and sometimes white and cream-colored ones.  

I wonder if he knows what he is missing?  
Yellow flowers are like little bits of sunshine in my eyes.

I am longing for Spring,
yellow flowers,
and
Silver-spotted Skippers.

Very pretty Marissa! I like the yellow flowers too. I love those daffies. I think that Skipper is looking right at you and giving you the stink eye!

Gorgeous! I love the subtle texture on this.

Deanna said...

I do know skippers...and I do know this is a delightful image. And thanks for the info about skippers and what they like...you would think yellow would be an attractor not a detractor (sp??)
