Peck's Skipper

Polites peckius

Description:

Brownish tan with hand-like bold yellow marking on underside of hindwinds.

Habitat:

Spotted nectaring on Russian Sage in my garden. Area is a gated man-made lake community, surrounded by rural agricultural land, and some deciduous forest areas. In areas that are not mowed, the land is old fields within the community, and are mowed biannually. Ditchlines and treelines are left untouched.
