A checkered-fringe prominent caterpillar (Schizura ipomoeae) surreptitiously chomping on American hazelnut (Corylus americana). This leaf edge mimic's frass (poop) gave his position away.

Mothapalooza 2017! A fun weekend of plant & caterpillar ID walks, interesting & informative lectures and late night mothing. Fabulous expertise: guides Jim McCormac & Sam Jaffe; speakers Doug Tallamy, Sam Jaffe & Eric Metzer. The shuttle drivers who took us to the mothing locations at all hours of the night were also rock stars.

Katydid nymph? Whatever it is, it was hungry for Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia). I haven't seen it in a few days so maybe something was hungry for it...?

An eastern tiger swallowtail caterpillar (Papilio glaucus) looking for a place to pupate. This beautiful gal must've come from our wild black cherry tree (Prunus serotina), one of its many host plants.

One of our eastern gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis), with a distinct 'ginger' tail. Squirrels are the cutest.

This is one of two Carolina wrens that frequent our habitat. This little guy (gal?) likes to hide out in the untidy compost bin.
