Pearl Crescent

Phyciodes tharos

Description:

Two butterflies mating, the third was waiting his turn. When the first mate flew off, the remaining two began their "courting". Safe to say, monogamy is not a reproductive strategy they employ.

Habitat:

Reclaimed farmland- prairie restoration project
