    Hi Jerry,

    Have many wildflowers in my yard, pink lady slippers ( 15 so far ), jack in the pulpets, and tirillium (red ).

    Wanted to know more about them, as well as other wildflowers we have in our woods.

    The moth on the pink lady’s slipper if you haven’t already found out is Tetracis cachexiata (White slant-line). Beautiful pictures.
