Nevada Skipper
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).

I'll have to check out your SP album on Nevada's insects - still loving all your photos! I saw Skippers when growing up in Utah.
They were all over the wildflowers. Are you familiar with the one ENDEMIC to the Grand Canyon - the Grand Canyon Ringlet? CHEERS !!!
