Common Checkered Skipper on Ageratina havanensis 0403

Click for greater clarity.

Come check this common checkered skipper, Pyrgus communis. The bush is one you’ve seen before, Ageratina havanensis, known as white mistflower, Havana snakeroot, and shrubby boneset. The date was November 13, 2013, and the location was Floral Park Dr. in my Great Hills neighborhood in northwest Austin.



At the bottom of each post is a gray “banner” with information about the post. The most useful part is probably the line headed by the words “Tagged with.” If you click any of the categories given there, you’ll get a scrolling view of all the posts that have been categorized that way (at the bottom of each group you’ll have to click “<<Older Entries” to keep going back). For example, if you click the link for “butterfly,” you’ll be able to see every picture I’ve ever posted of a butterfly. I just tried it and found there were 28 before today; I didn’t realize there had been so many, although it averages out to a little less than one a month.
