Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Time: ~12:00 p.m. Weather: Warm, calm, and mostly cloudy, with some periodic light sprinkles. Habitat: Large roadside clearing in a sparse montane pine forest. Notes: This year, I saw significantly fewer wood-nymphs than last year, probably because the camping trip was three weeks later last year. This grass-filled clearing was one of the best places at the campground to see them. I was actually planning on trying to document one of their host grass species (which are largely unknown), but I unfortunately couldn't due to the cloudy weather, as none were out flying around (which means no egg-laying to watch for).
