A gorgeous Skipper (not sure which one) butterfly. I really like their little faces, they seem to be a lot 'cuddlier' then other butterflies! Smile

Thanks. I never could find out what kind of butterfly or moth this was, so I appreciate the tip!

Karen is correct it is a Skipper butterfly, If you look at the antenna they are black on the ends as though dipped in black paint, this tells me it is an Essex Skipper.

My comment stands, this is from Wikipedia "The Essex skipper (Thymelicus lineola) is a butterfly in family Hesperiidae. In North America, it is known as the European skipper."
