This skipper measured 15 mm from head to wing tips. It was a very windy day so I couldn't photograph it in situ. The weeds were blowing too much. Instead, my daughter caught it in a net and moved it to a calm area in a clear plastic peanut butter jar. I took these photos as I opened the jar and released the skipper.
