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 was sitting on my deck in my suburban back yard when I saw it feeding on tall verbena (verbena bonariensis) nectar. Grabbed my camera and snapped pics. I’ve followed butterflies for 50 years and had never seen one. Temperatures on a mostly sunny day were in the low 80s.
