Reposting to fix typos:
Brought home a Prunus Virginiana (AKA "Chokecherry") to honor Northern ancestors, planted it bonsai-style; and like I usually do with new plant friends, started researching how nuances of microclimate might help in its acclimation.
It is natively widespread in Canada and the northernmost US states. Its berries were used as part of a suet/pemmican (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pemmican) by native tribes who would mix them with cooked bison fat and meat; early explorers would take the on expeditions to cold, remote places in the Arctic.
So what of the moths?
It seems, the shrubbish-tree has many species of moths that feed on it exclusively. So started reading about moths; saw a few last season, but none with these vibrant green; almost peacock colors. There are so many kinds of moths! Far more than the kind of mothball infamy.
They are expressive little creatures. Found a photo on Flickr of one I really liked with a lupine leaf (grow lupines too because of Fender's Blue!), but the photographer had kind of a rude tone in his bio and (since I always attribute sources), got the impression he'd throw a tantrum, even if I did attribute.
The best photographers make judicious use of the #copyleft freedoms. Here's two photos from copyleft-friendlies (credit on photo description)
