The other day, I had to take a son to physical therapy, and while I was waiting, I went up the road to a state wildlife management area and photographed the butterflies and first which I thought was a bug or a beetle that was on a flower. This insect, I had never seen before and I could not find it in my field guides. I then posted a picture on BugGuide, where you can join for free, post the picture and people will identify it for you. BugGuide can be found at http://bugguide.net/node/view/15740. The insect turned out to be a moth, in the Tiger moth family, Yellow-collared Scape Moth (Cisseps fulvicollis), which feeds during the day.

There were a number of Cabbage White Butterfly - Pieris rapae on the ground obtaining minerals from the moist soil.
