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: Found sitting on the door mat outside the Kwik Shop. Picked up in a cup so someone wouldn't step on them. Just set the cup on them at first, thought it would try to fly away. When it didn't move, I just set the cup in front of them and nudged it with my finger, walked right into the cup. Didn't move at all from the side of the cup till I tried to get it into the old fish aquarium at home, absolutely refused to leave the cup or move at all. Used a piece of receipt paper trying to get them to walk onto it so I could just set the receipt into the aquarium, instead they finally opened their wings a little bit and flapped onto the side of the aquarium for me when I touched their legs with the paper.
