Chlosyne janais

Observation date: July 08, 2019
Submitted by: lwhite
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I reported seeing Crimson Patch caterpillars on my acanthus bushes last month. Today, I found a Crimson Patch butterfly on the porch near the bushes. I think the butterfly had recently exited its chrysalis, and was still letting its wings "dry."
