Studying Butterflies and Moths: Share Your Sightings

Contribute to the Study of butterflies and moths by sharing you photos and/ or reporting where you see different species. Go to this great website: http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/.

“Butterflies and Moths of North America is an ambitious effort to collect, store, and share species information and occurrence data.” Get involved by submitting your sightings, or by sharing high quality photographs to this website.

Even if you don’t have any photos or just don’t want to submit them for whatever reason, this is also a good place to help you identify the butterflies and moths that you find.

Here are a few pictures that I took in Aug. of 2012 in Leonardtown MD. I submitted two of these pictures to Butterflies and Moths of North America (the above website.)

These are mating Carolina satyrs (Hermeuptychia sosybius).
