This is not an uncommon sight with many similar images posted on the internet. There has not been anything of note to my knowledge so far, not that I am an expert, as to why these White Slant-line moths-Tetracis cachexiata land and stay on Pink Lady’s Slippers-Cypripedium acaule. They just seem to sit there in the early morning. Obviously there must be an explanation in nature but Google searching hasn’t presented any evidence.
Aside from the mystery, this is a favorite image from 2010 before I was blogging so is making its debut here.
There are a good four weeks or so until either of these is liable to make an appearance here, but since these are reminiscing times I thought to share it. While usually I am not in a hurry for time to pass us by I think that, with both the oncoming flowering season and a hopeful diminishment of the virus plaguing us, we wouldn’t mind a jump ahead. We may never get back to “normal” but at least something approaching that would be welcome, eh?
