Peck's Skippers are one of our most abundant and widespread skippers. They usually fly from May through September (with occasional stragglers in October).
This Peck's Skipper apparently decided that my car hood would be a good place to bask in the sun.

This Peck's Skipper is perched atop an unopened thistle flower, on the Sugarcreek Reserve prairie. Peck's Skippers adore thistle blossoms (as do many species of butterflies). I have often photographed 3 or 4 Peck's Skippers nectaring together on a single thistle flower.
