Hi Terri,

I don’t think this is a Little Glassywing (ground color and spotting aren’t quite right, and the white on the antenna isn’t placed just right). It could be Tawny-edged Skipper. And it looks okay even for Crossline Skipper, rare in Vermont. It might certainly not be a Crossline Skipper (in large part because it’s probably too early for them to be flying). But maybe a bit more investigation at the site might be warranted?

Best,
Bryan

Hi all, Today in Bennington a witch appeared.  Question is which Witch is it? I’m leaning toward Little Glassywing… maybe. There seems to be white just below 
the antenna club. Unfortunately it never opened up to expose the dorsal view.
