French Skipper

French Skipper

Observation - French Skipper. Description: ... or Capitaine, as we like to call it. :) I've been guilty of not looking closely enough - again. I wrote this off as a Dingy Skipper but the hind wings are wrong - more patterned. Fortunately, my wife pointed out that they were wrong. :)

I've looked through my 30-year-old Collins Field Guide (must get a new one) but am still confused. I know it's a Skipper but which Skipper. It's from Provence in the south of France, September.
