Little Glassywing Skipper, etc.

Sightings and scenes from butterfly counting over the past few days. Above: the little glassywing skipper.

A click beetle landed on me while I was searching for butterflies. Below: playing dead after I tried to remove it.

Ever-present cabbage whites puddling.

The one that got away: There is a brownish butterfly resting on a leaf around the center of these two photos. It was about the size of a red admiral. It did not settle down anywhere until it flew across a small stream, and I only had my compact camera with me. Maybe I can find out what species is most likely.
