It is hard to find anything more appropriate for the last week in October then the Halloween pennant. Pennants are colorful members of the skipper family. They are called pennants because they like to perch horizontally from a stick, plant or blade of grass. This makes them look like a flag or pennant. The Halloween pennant is mostly yellow and brown when they emerge. Males turn to this orange color as they mature which is how they became named the Halloween pennant.
