A new butterfly (for me)

I got away today and went to a wildlife area about an hour from my home. It rained over the weekend so, there was moisture available, and the area has had good moisture all spring. I saw lots and lots of butterflies. I saw puddlers and "scat"ers. I got a photo of a butterfly I had never seen before. I've included a link to the photo on my pbase website. It's a Banded Skipper - Styrium calanus.
