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 was in my raised bed garden when this butterfly flew by and landed on my marigold. I thought it was a small bird at first, as I saw it had a tail. I went into the house, grabbed my camera, came back and got several photos of it on the flower. The weather was sunny, but windy with some clouds. The Longtail was still on the marigold when I left the area.
