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!
Date notes: Very butterfly busy front native plant garden. The Throughwort drawing the most species. The Crimson Patch was a new species for the ranch - bring the total to 91 species. Several from 2016 still need to be submitted.

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: My wife and I found this bug feeding on the Throughwort along with about 10 other species of butterflies and moths. Recent heat wave has re-energized our bugs.
