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: Leafwing was displaying, foraging, resting, and defending territory of an open area where Sotol Creek crosses the Pine Tree Trail above Aguirre Springs Campground. Individual preferred perches on dead branches and trunks. The afternoon was sunny, windy, and warm.

Coordinator notes: Is it possible that Tropical has replaced Goatweed in the Organ Mtns? Amazing. and these are terrific images, Jim. I don't recall ever seeing one take moisture, which you have now documented. and I'd like to borrow one or two images for BofNM if that's OK with you.
