Inspired by the Flickr group ID Please, this is a place to post observations of things you don't know, and to help people identify mysterious creatures!
Very occasionally, this "fake Crimson" form of Bordered Patch shows up; not common in this area. Photographed on Willowleaf Aster at the Refuge HQ.
Typically very common in Fall, particularly on Cowpen Daisy (Verbesina encelioides) which is both a nectar source and larval food plant. This "normal" patterned individual is nectaring on Tall or "Willowleaf" Aster (Symphyotrichum praealtum) at the Refuge HQ.
First documented Refuge record. A very worn specimen was captured on cowpen daisy (Verbesina encelioides) on upper Cow Creek then photographed (and released) at the Refuge HQ.
