Grassy Glades


A pristine white moth among the leaf blades of our lawn - a fantastic contrast. A native moth - of course! Virginia tiger moth, also known in the caterpillar stage as a yellow woolly bear. 

The male has feathery antennae to pick up on and hone in on a female releasing pheromones. 

It looked as if the grass blades were alive and moving while these two ants tried escorting an insect and its wings away. I think they're probably carpenter ants.
