Like many other moths, Reversed Haploa can be found resting on low lying leaves. Their coloring makes them stand out against the greenery, amplifying their aesthetic. The wing design reminds me of an ethnic pattern. What do you think of when you see this moth?
Here’s some bug sex for all you peeps out there (myself included.) What else would you expect from a dirty wormy?
Wood sorrel is both edible and medicinal. You can easily add a few leaves to a wild harvest salad for a bit of lemony tang or enjoy as a trail nibble. Like lemons, this plant also happens to be high in Vitamin C.

Deptford pink wildflowers are easy to overlook because of their tiny flower size. (About the size of a dime or smaller.) Had I been looking for something special or tiny, I probably would have missed this flower.
