|Amazing purple! Wonderful Texture. I am not familiar with this flower. I will have to research it.
Nice to see the underside of the Skipper wing.

|Another Skipper, I think the name of this one is 'Least Skipper'.
The flower is on 'Sapphire Showers' a Golden Dew Drop cultivar. Duranta erecta is the scientific name. It's not hardy here but we overwinter it under fluorescent lights in the basement. It's trained as a small tree. Attracts a fair number of pollinators.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
