April 27 Nature Neighbor - leaf miners and galls!

Our nature neighbors today are leaf miners and galls! For our last day of the City Nature Challenge, we would like to focus on other under-represented groups of insects: leaf miners and gall inducers. Easy challenge: leaf miner. They are usually either moths or flies, and are found on many plants. Please take photos of both sides of the leaf, and add the plant itself. Hard challenge: galls. They are induced by many arthropods, such as flies and wasps, on different parts of the plant. Take photos of the gall and the plant.
