Insects seem to definitely be attracted to the silk flowers on the patio. This beautiful specimen caught my eye, in the evening, because of its colors and how well it blended with the little potted palm tree that hold the fake flowers.

Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. Most animals are motile, meaning they can move spontaneously and independently. All animals must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance (see Heterotroph).
