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 Viceroy held onto this Tall Joe-Pye Weed like nobody's business as the wind tossed it around in every possible direction for a good 7 - 8 minutes. Can't believe I got a shot of it during the brief second it was at rest. Located right by a bridge over a wetland area. Size: Approx. 3" wingspan. Weather: 82 degrees, 54% humidity.
