A Rarely Seen Creature: A Springtime Beauty!

While walking in Dogwood Canyon in Missouri this past week I discovered a creature I had never seen before. Apparently it is only seen in its adult stage in the months of March through May. It is often mistaken for a butterfly when it is actually a moth. It fooled me until I took a closer look. Let’s learn about the Grapevine epimenis.
