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: Saw this butterfly from a distance up in a tree in a wooded area that bordered the parking lot at the dog park. Although the orange was still bright enough to catch my eye, its overall condition looked fairly faded and worn. Stayed up there for about 7 or 8 minutes, just slightly rotating its position. Size: Approx. 2.5" wingspan. Weather: 84 degrees, 70% humidity, sunny skies with a few clouds.
