Butterfly: American Snout

By taggart  
Butterfly: American Snout
Libytheana bachmanii. 1 7/8 inches

This tiny butterfly visits for a few days in late summer--- They tend to be migrators, traveling in small groups to warmer areas! Usually we only (maybe). see one--this summer there were several.
NOTE: This is likely a female---re : the grey tip on the wing

Thank you to Marie for her award and to all for your interest in "Diana".
