This Long-tailed Skipper, Urbanus proteus, was photographed at the Elkhorn Garden Plots in Columbia on October 6, 2012, the latest date I saw this butterfly at the gardens.
And this was the first Long-tail I saw on August 12, 2012 at Elkhorn Garden Plots, Columbia, MD. It remained for several days. Another showed up on September 3 and a late one on October 6!
This Long-tailed Skipper from 3 September 2012 at the Elkhorn Garden Plots had shorter tails than the others seen.
Another southern visitor, not quite as rare as the Long-tailed Skipper, this Clouded Skipper is being photographed by an admirer at the Elkhorn Garden Plots on September 1, 2012.
