A Crossline Skipper Butterfly drinking on a warm fall day.

I have always been fascinated by butterflies. The way they flutter around so carefree. They also show many unique traits in the way they eat and drink. This photo shows a Crossline Skipper (Hesperiidae Hesperiinae) taking a drink on a hot fall day.
