Butterflies Sipping From Flowers

We strolled over to Bartholdy Park this afternoon, and while Amy drew a paperbark maple I got some quick video of these two skippers on flowers . If you look closely you can even see their long black probosces uncurling to sip nectar from the flowers.

More photos in the Aug 2008 weekend photoset, including this awesomely huge cicada on a blue tarp on New Jersey Ave NW.
