Meet the Neighbors: Field Crescent

For the introduction to this series, see here.

This beautiful little butterfly lives in the western half of the country. Here in Colorado, I am on the eastern edge of its range. There are many species of Crescents so there is certainly one near you if you live in the US. You might easily miss them unless you look for them because they are very small. Field Crescents have a wingspan of only about an inch or so. Small is beautiful is very applicable to these charming little insects.
