Skippers are butterflies too.
Skippers are part of the Hesperidae family classification, distinguished by hook like antennae, no metallic colour to upperside of wings, and when resting they appear like "jet-planes".....
There are many species of these pretty little butterflies and it takes an expert to tell some of them apart.
