2015—Mournful

One morning while I was sitting in the backyard at Melinda’s house in Arizona last week, a black and brown butterfly flitted around the butterfly bush. Both Melinda and I chased it for a while. I managed to capture a couple of decent shots and I was curious about what this small butterfly might be. A review of the lengthy list of Arizona butterflies I found on-line narrowed it down to a type of skipper, then a type of duskywing skipper, and finally I found a similar one called a Mournful Duskywing Skipper.
