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: Still in the same drainage ditch, about 6-8 individuals seen in one area. They were flying low over the water in the ditch and often stopped to perch on the green plants in the water, spreading out their wings (basking presumably) whenever they landed. They would also chase each other off of their perches a lot. The pale line near the middle of the ventral hindwing in the photo could be this species' pale line or just lighting.
