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: This was the other Monarch I saw at the county extension demonstration gardens today, sailing in and out of the butterfly beds. The underside of this one's wings were more of a faded, golden yellow color. And it seemed to prefer the Purpletop Vervain. Size: Approx. 4.25" wingspan. Weather: 91 degrees, 70% humidity, sunny muggy skies.
