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 around and nectaring on pink cone flowers in a flower bed at the demonstration gardens at the extension center. Nearby flowers included Joe-Pye Weed, Stonecrop, Bee Balm, Butterfly Bushes, and more... Fed on a blossom for a minute or two, rotating, then would pop over to the next cone flower. Size: Approx. 2-2.25" wingspan. Weather: 83 degrees, 65% humidity, sunny skies.
