Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Sunny warm day. Eating lunch outside in the courtyard of my mother-in-law’s house. This butterfly first grazed my right cheek and it’s wings brushed against my right ear. It fluttered around behind me and came to rest on my left thigh, where it sat for about 1 minute, allowing me time to photograph it.
