A female Horace's duskywing rests on some sort of aster just outside of Punta Gorda, Florida in a pineland scrub. A somewhat small and plain member of the skipper family of butterflies (and easily confused for a moth) this easily photographed species has a home range from all over the Eastern United States and all the way west to the Rocky Mountains, which is an effective natural barrier.
