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: I've not seen this one before in my garden. However, I have Giant Milkweed in flower in my garden. There are also ficus and banyan trees in the neighborhood. I think this butterfly may be close to ending it's life cycle as it was unable to fly very far. It would flutter to a plant or a screen and just stay there. Even though they are common in Florida, I was excited to see one in my yard.
