Pearl Crescent
Phyciodes tharos

Observation date: July 30, 2021
Submitted by: Taysal005
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I was out checking out vegetable patch, which includes a small bunch of pumpkin vines. The butterfly was flying around a big leaf and finally decided to land. It was no bigger than 2in wide I’d estimate. I tried my best to get as close as I could without frightening it off, but it sure did sit still for me to try a couple different pics and zooms before flying off.
