Pearl Crescent Butterfly

Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos) On this hot humid day, this Pearl Crescent(Phyciodes tharos) was basking in the sun. It is a common feature of pearl crescents to bask with their wings spread. And where is it basking? On the driveway of course. It is but one of many varieties of butterflies that likes to gather in moist areas in the driveway forming puddle clubs. Here at Habitat Home we have a long gravel driveway which we never blacktopped and I am so glad we did not.
