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 struggling (flapping its wings furiously in all manners) really hard down in some tall prairie grass along a path at the off-the-leash dog park. Finally settled down, and I realized what it was doing was fighting its way out of , or thru, a spider's web, and it did. And then it rested with its wings outstretched for awhile. Large in size (initially thought it was a Common Wood Nymph). Weather: Cloudy skies, 46 degrees, 65% humidity.
