At the Springfield Bog today, I located what I believe to be a Pepper and Salt Skipper. At least it appears to have all the proper ID's. Pictures attached. I have never seen this species before so if someone could confirm or correct the ID, I would be very appreciative.
Also present were Cabbage White, Tiger Swallowtail sp and Pearl Crescent.
