While poking around in the garden today, I found a Wild Indigo Duskywing caterpillar on the Crown Vetch and a pretty little Cosmet Moth - Stilbosis tesquella.

Spending more time at home, I have been rewarded with several rare visitors in recent weeks. Two imperiled dragonfly species, a young Bobcat last night and a Box Turtle in the pond this morning.
