Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: It was very hot and I was swimming when I noticed this hanging on to the side of the pool, but not in the water. I let it climb onto my arm and snapped a photo. I didn't know where to set it so I left it under a large grape vine overhang on the wood frame that had the most shade and cover from anything that might try to eat it. We have grapes, nectarines, and a large hedge that surrounds the yard.
