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!
Date notes: Already 90F/20% humidity and light breeze.

Observation notes: Was in a patch of Indian Blanket flowers(Gaillardia pulchella), along with numerous Variegated Fritillaries. I was only able to get 3 fairly quick photos before I lost track of it. I “think “ I also saw one yesterday morning? No camera and only a brief look.
Some pairing going on but mainly seeking sips. Very hot and dry.
