Today, the butterfly of the day is the small, dainty, somewhat plain (but cute) skipper.  Some people nickname this family of butterflies the "little brown jobs".  My husband doesn't know why I waste my time on them, but I like them.  They are grass butterflies, flying low and sometimes in and among the tall grasses of a meadow.  I bet most people don't even see them.

Because of the zoom lens, you may not get a real feel for how small these butterflies are.  Just think about the size of the clover flower....

Two for One - the top one is a Peck's Skipper.  Not sure about the other one.
