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: Individual small butterfly displaying/perching and taking nutrients and moisture from the headwall seep at the Soledad Canyon waterfall, Organ Mountains. This is my first observation of this species, on a day when 10-12 other species were also present as single visitors or in small numbers. The midday was warm, it was relatively still at this site, and it was under full sun. Down-canyon, the wind was blowing in the 40-50 mph range.
