I'm not sure if this is a moth or butterfly - I'd love to know what this beauty is!

I'm usually pretty good at figuring out butterfly species - but this one has me stumped! I am pretty positive it isn't a monarch as I have had dozens happily pop by this summer/fall, and know the species quite well! It had a rather furry abdomen, had a wingspan of between 2-3 inches. Any ideas?

Thick leaves of grass , growing in bunches in both yard and garden - have bulbs - do not smell of garlic or onions. What are these curious little sprouts?

The top of a Mutinus elegans after some sort of critter ripped it off - an "egg" if this fungus was found in the yard last week - just as strange as the mature form.

I was walking barefoot and hit the gelatin-like goo of this thing - it seemed like some sort of nut casing at first, but then poked the "mini mozzerella"-esque ball - it is solid. What is this????
