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: Weather was still quite warm and humid for October in Southeast Virginia (81 degrees/ dewpoint in the 60s). Moth was fluttering quickly through a large Lantana and pausing just long enough to feed. I watched it for at least 15 minutes, much of that time was spent trying to capture a photo because this is the first time seeing this species of sphinx in my yard.
