American Snout (Libytheana carinenta)
This unique-looking butterfly is an unforgettable beauty. It has elongated mouthparts that give the appearance of a long snout. The only snout species in North America. The America Snout has been known to migrate northwards from Texas when the southern populations become overcrowded. Sometimes these migrations can appear to be dark clouds in the sky. This is a lovely butterfly to welcome into your gardens and enjoy around your home.
