A Coupla Meadowlands Moths

DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst is looking terrific these days, with more native plants than ever.

Saw two clear-winged moths in the Jill Ann Ziemkiewicz Memorial Butterfly Garden yesterday. The reddish one is a Hummingbird Clear-winged Moth, and I'm thinking the blacker one -- actually perched ona leaf -- is a Snowberry. 

Really get a good look at those almost clear wings.

Butterfly Day at DeKorte (and Diurnal Moth Day) is just nine days away.

Maybe it's just me, but Diurnal Moth Day just doesn't sound as cool, for some reason. IMG_4056
