Competes with the Fiery Skipper as the most common in Arkansas. Also loves yards and gardens. http://www.hr-rna.com/RNA/Bfly pages/Sachem page.htm

With all the variations in the marking and the color of this skipper, I found that I had more trouble with ID's than on any other. It is one of the most visually present butterflies in my garden over a long season. It is constantly swarming in the mating mode. Hard not to like this precocious little butterfly.
