Even amid the beauty of #OzarkMountainChristmas, the natural beauty of the Ozarks sparkles. One of the last butterflies of the year? Outside entrance to #Bradford Eatery #BransonMo on Nov 16. Thought it was a #MonarchButterly, but don’t believe it is; or a #ViceroyButterfly. Can anyone identify it for us? #Butterfly #Butterflies #ExploreBranson #BransonRegister #Lepidopterist #Lepidopterology
Here's a new one- a hatchling from several years ago. The marsh fritillary butterfly. Unfortunately these are now so endangered that I haven't been able to release any since (but I'm hoping that will change). They are reliant on wildflower meadows for their habitat and foodplant, devils bit scabious. With the destruction of these, they are now registered as a high priority endangered species. #igclub_butterfly
Еще одна пальцекрылка - сумеречная бабочка.
Manduca sexta, the Tobacco Hornworm sphinx moth. I am raising this species for my Advanced Science Research class, for an experiment investigating the learning abilities of moths and butterflies. This species shown in the photo is commonly used for scientific studies, as it is easy to rear in lab conditions, and it is widely available. I am having much more difficulties raising the painted lady butterfly larvae in lab conditions for my experiment. If anyone knows about shock chambers or the Y choice apparatus, please DM me! I would love any advice or recommendations for my research experiment. #manducasexta #tobaccohornworm #carolinasphinxmoth #sphinxsphingidae #sphingid #lepidoptera #lepidopterist #entomology #entomologist #insects #moths #thelepidopterist #cornellentomology #UFentomology #ucdavisentomology #advancedscienceresearch
