My blogger friends identified this as a skipper. I have never seen nor photographed one before this year. I don't know why they have just showed up in the garden befor but there are many of them eating on the sedum blooms.
Dry weather usually destroys the sedum in the garden and this is the first year that it has bloomed so profusely for a long time. I really didn't know they had so much nectar. The bumblebees and honey bees are also very interested in the sedum.
Fading flowers can still have a partial beauty to them. I don't have any coneflowers left in full bloom but these pastel-looking ones are still showing off as pink flowers.
I thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day.
