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: Butterfly photographed, temperature in the mid 60s. Light breeze. Sunny. Elevation approximately 4000 ft. Nectaring on native phlox. I saw 50 to 100 Clodius on the drive and walk to the top of the mountain. Many were nectaring on ox-eye daisys growing alongside the slow vehicle turnouts. Some appeared to be patrolling patches of flowers.
