Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. 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: Our yard was full of Painted Lady butterflies! I don't know whether they were migrating, or from the thistle patch in our neighbor's yard, but they sure loved our Cosmos! They were most active when the sun was shining (no cloud). I have been seeing quite a few around since then, but not as many.
