Size: 2" x 3"
Found this one on a Bee Balm plant in the morning. It stayed there all day and was not bothered by being photographed or touched. It moved from one stem of the plant to another in the middle of the day presumably to get out of the direct sun and into the shade. Nightime temps are mid 50's and daytime temps are 80 degrees or so this time of year.
