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: The moth was outside my door which is on an upstairs balcony, on door sill beside a big flower pot with a dormant lavender plant in it. Sunny cold windy day. The moth stayed on my hand while I moved around and went inside to get camera and wouldn't leave my hand unless I purposefully guided him off. He readily climbed back on after I put him on the piece of my felted wool for photos.
