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: This butterfly was nectaring on water speedwell. The Rio Grande in the Las Cruces area is dry but for treated water that flows into it just north of the I-10 bridge. Though the flow is meager, it nevertheless supports lush plant growth along its banks.
