Dun Skipper Euphyes vestris

I was out taking pictures yesterday when, I thought I was being attacked by a horsefly. It turned out it was this skipper. So I figured I'd get some shots of it and then I saw its huge proboscis. Wow, it is about two inches long! I tried to get to get a shot of it rolled up but none of them turned out good. To really see it click the pictures to view them in a larger format.
