A few days ago, a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris thysbe) was nectaring at the Eastern Blazingstar (Liatris scariosa).
One of the Monarchs would have none of that and chased it away.
The Clearwing went to the Ironweed (Vernonia arkansana) to feed. Its coloration mimics the spent blooms so perfectly.
And this weary, tattered traveler found our waystation. More are on the way!
