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: In national park gardens when this butterfly caught my eye sitting peacefully on a bush. When I got closer, the butterfly flew away shortly to return to another bush 20-30 feet away. Hot and humid weather. 80 Degrees Fahrenheit with no breeze. Slightly cloudy with no recent rain.
