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: Seen in the middle of road as I was leaving Baker Wetlands. Wasn't sure if it was hurt or not, so tried to help if I could. Would fly a little bit, but seemed to prefer remaining in the road. Not sure if it found something tasty in the cracks of the road or if it was trying to regain its strength after a close call? Let me get quite close but wouldn't let me pick it up. Size: Little larger than one I'd seen earlier, approx. 3" wingspan. Weather: 82 degrees, 80% humidity, temperature rising while humidity falling. Heavy rainfalls yesterday and part of this morning.
