Planta herbácea. Flores en racimos largos. Fruto carnoso globoso aplaneado.
Pokeberries -- thanks to bubbleoffplumb for the ID. Has the look about if of some horrid invasive foreign something-or-other, and invasive it may be, but it's actually native, & it sure is neat. ~6' hi nonwoody bush, the stems pink thruout at this stage (they turn pink as it fruits). Leaves 2-6" long; the large leaves are alternate, but they often have little ones growing in the axils. In a wild shrubby area of riverside urban park. Same species in flower nearby.
Ailanthus Webworm Moth. I thought it was a beetle, until I saw it drinking from these flowers thru a proboscis! It's ~1 cm long. I ID'ed it by pure dumb luck -- I was looking at a moth page trying to find these caterpillars.
Flowers are a pokeweed (thanks, Urtica!) -- 2' bush. Here's the fruit -- the stem turns bright pink. In an unmown grass/weed/shrub area of urban riverbank park.
Some Pokeweed & Flat-top Goldentop cozying up. I saw this color combo & just couldn't resist.
