This moth stayed on my porch for 2 nights, moving to a couple of different spots but never leaving. The 3rd night I turned the porch lights off and he was gone the next morning.

The damage to a leaf on my Eastern Redbud tree alerted to me to insect activity. When I turned it over, I found this orangy fluff. It looks like a clear eggshell at the upper end.

Tonight I happened upon emerging Brazilian Skipper caterpillars. My Cannas have been host to them before, so I was hoping to have more to be able to document their life cycle. I counted 17 eggs, but undoubtedly there are more since they are easy to overlook. Eggs are laid singly, usually 2 per leaf surface, top and bottom. I expect 2-3 will survive long enough to pupate. 2 mm in length.

juvenile male on the crocodile's neck LOL I couldn't help myself, this made me laugh so hard when I noticed it on the computer. I wish I had noticed it while photographing as I'd have made sure it was more in focus.

Insect or a fungus? It is on a Crape Myrtle. I know a white bark fungus grows on these also. This looks a little different. It is also on a leaf not the bark.
