Silver-spotted Skipper

This is the only Silver-spotted Skipper that I have seen here at the Suwannee River State Park. It is supposed to be all over Florida, but I do not recall ever seeing one before. The exposure was so long that you can see movement of the left antenna in the image.Silver-spotted Skipper
