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: 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."
