Happy Mystery Monday! We’re kicking off July with this showy plant. What is it?
Last week, we highlighted the eight-spotted forester moth! This moth is part of the owlet moth family. They have black velvety wings with cream-colored spots and showy orange tufts on their legs. As larvae, they rely on Virginia creeper and grape plants. As adults, they seek out nectar from flowers and, unlike many moths, are diurnal (active during the day)
