One of the larger Skippers here in the eastern US, the Silver Spotted Skipper has a wingspan of up to 2", commonly found in gardens and along roadsides wherever nectar plants bloom.
It's a quick little guy, never resting long in one place, but it's easy to identify because of the large silvery markings on the wings.
Caterpillar eats foliage of leguminous plants, including locust trees and wisteria.
