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: Butterflies seem to be warming up and drying out after a cool, wet night. This one was perched quietly on a blade of grass with wings spread open. At my approach it slowly closed its wings and stayed that way.
