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: Saw two of these flying through the Butterfly Bed at the county extension demonstration gardens. First one seen was depositing eggs on Dutchman's Pipe Vine. Can see a couple of the eggs on the vine. Deposited, then flew up and away from it a little bit, then back to it several times, then off to nectar on the pink phlox. Weather: 79 degrees, 50% humidity, clear sunny skies. Note: Saw two of these, and they were flying around and feeding so furiously, along with all the other butterflies, that I'm not sure which photos on the phlox are of which one.
