A tiny Nevada Skipper (Hesperia nevada) feeds on flower nectar.
Spotted in a meadow below McFarland Peak in the Spring Mountains, Nevada.
The habitat of these butterflies ranges from sagebrush, grasslands and aspen parks to mountain summits; from 7000 to 12,000 feet in elevation.
Their wingspan reaches 1 1/8 - 1 7/16 inches (2.9 - 3.7 cm).
