Mangrove Skipper



Phocides pigmalion
Vero Beach FL
4/5/06
There she be in all her glory. I get pretty excited when I get a shot of a new beast, especially one that has been taunting me for a couple weeks.
These apparently feed on Red Mangrove (Rhisophora mangle), in contrast to the Mangrove
Buckeye:

Mangrove Buckeye

which feeds on Black Mangrove (Avicennia germinans).
