WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY – ENCHANTED FOREST PARK – NORTH MIAMI, FL

This wildlife photograph is of a Skipper Butterfly, titled “Ready for Take Off”, was captured at Enchanted Forest Park, located on NE 135th Street in North Miami, FL. The camera gear used in the skipper butterfly capture was a Nikon D90 attached to a Nikkor 60mm 2.8 lens.

Skipper Butterflies display many structural features of both moths and butterflies; stocky with a large head, widely spaced, hooked antennae, a chunky body and short wings, these smallish butterflies are sometimes rapid, erratic fliers.

The family is subdivided into 7 subfamilies: Hesperiinae (grass skippers),  Coeliadinae, Euschemoninae, Eudaminae (dicot skippers), Pyrginae (spreadwings),  Heteropterinae (monocot skippers), and Trapezitinae (found only in Oceania).
