Re: Found a very weird looking moth


What is really neat is that my two mature plants that I thought had frozen to death actually recovered. They are looking much nicer now and are in full bloom. Those plants are the ones that fed my Monarch caterpillars until I found them and brought them indoors to raise.

Oddly enough they have even survived the grasshopper hoard which is quite a feat right now. Now if only I'd get some more caterpillars. I haven't seen any Monarchs for a while but the Queens have been showing up. Their caterpillars eat milkweed too.

Now that is saying something! Perhaps grasshoppers don't care for milkweed?

Well they seem to have developed a taste for it though it isn't nearly so strong. We've had so much rain lately that it wouldn't make sense trying to spray anything else. I have a cedar oil spray that I still haven't tried yet. I've even taken to catching them so that I can feed my garden spiders.

Oh dear....catching them to feed your garden spiders is a nice touch though. Seeing how spiders are good luck. emoticon

I actually did something different the last time that I fed a spider. Since I had my camera with me I shot video of the big girl wrapping up her meal. I just haven't had a chance to look and see if the quality is okay.

Re: Found a very weird looking moth


Oh, I can't wait to see that one. It should be fascinating!
Here is something you may find interesting....how 'we' see Spider's....they are one of the "Totem" animals.

 **The spider is a remarkable figure of feminine energy and creativity in the spirit animal kingdom. Spiders are characterized by the skilled weaving of intricate webs and patience in awaiting their prey. By affinity with the spider spirit animal, you may have qualities of high receptivity and creativity. Having the spider as a power animal or totem helps you tune into life’s ebbs and flows and ingeniously weave every step of your destiny.**

Sound a bit familiar to you? emoticon
