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: Located in Georgia Fall Line Sand Hills habitat. There was a lot of yucca around. The Cofaqui Giant-Skipper flew by and landed on the opposite shaded side of a tree initially out of my view. The Cofaqui was extremely backlit and the light was varying quite a bit as I was taking photos. The Cofaqui became aware of my presence and shuffled sideways on the tree out of my view again. I then moved around to the other side for a couple more photos before the Cofaqui flew away.
