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: Seen flying high through an oak tree's branches in an area directly bordering a more densely wooded area at the park, about 50 yards from the lake. Landed on a branch directly in the sun, kept its wings up most of the time (photographed it for about 3 minutes), only putting them down a few times very quickly. Size: Approx. 2.5" wingspan. Weather: 92 degrees, 55% humidity--hot and humid.
