Needs ID - Moth in the field

20 October 2019
428 Greenbelt Park – Aubrey Branch
Aubrey, Denton County, Texas

Had not observed this moth before in the field. Would perch on grass close to the ground face upward, its back towards the ground. Did some research on BugGuide, iNat, and Moth Photographers Group with no success as to its ID. Also looked up the five screens of moths in the iNat tool called, "Moths of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas." You can access the latter here: https://www.inaturalist.org/guides/3670

It looks similar to Orange Epipagis Moth (Epipagis fenestralis) but it appears to have different properties.

Several Turkey Vultures did a flyover just in case there might be food below. This site is a good site to get close-up Turkey Vulture images as the resident crew tends to do relatively close periodic flyovers.

Great-tailed Grackle (Quiscalus mexicanus)

2 November 2019
Kroger Parking Lot
University Drive W. & Carroll Avenue
Denton, Denton County, Texas

The daily nightly ritual of Great-tailed Grackles taking up their perches on the parking lots of urban and suburban Texas and beyond is observed at the local Kroger parking lot on the corner of Carroll Avenue and University Drive West, two blocks west of Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas. The male and female Great-tailed Grackles represented in this observation were arriving to settle into the oak trees dotting the parking lot and the sun had set, it was dusk, except for the light from the parking lot's lights which shimmered down from above giving us something to play with in developing these images.

Small planthopper flew onto a leaf by the side of the trail catching our attention. It allowed us to get close enough to take a series of images. But when we picked up the leaf it was on, it was gone in an instant and the only sound we heard was the flight sound of its kinetic energy, giant hop.

White Morning Glory (Ipomoea lacunosa)

26 September 2019
Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center
Denton, Denton County, Texas

Observed late in the afternoon to early evening, the flowers of these plants had already curled up for the evening per the description provided in the quoted source that follows. Small White Morning Glory is also known by additional common names like Whitestar and Pitted Morning Glory and the common name used on iNaturalist, White Morning-glory. This from our source cited below: "This pretty little white morning glory is found in most of the eastern half of the United States, west to Texas and Kansas; from Florida north to New York. All Ipomoea species, including Ipomoea lacunosa are prohibited as noxious weeds in Arizona and Arkansas (Ipomoea lacunosa isn’t found in Arizona.) While Small White Morning Glory is a United States native plant, it is not native in its entire range. As expected for such a disjointed population, it is not native to California, where it is currently found in only one county. The Morning Glory name is applied because these flowers, which can be especially glorious when large numbers are blooming, will close up later in the day as the bright sun shines on them. While most morning glories seem to close tightly, Ipomoea lacunosa just curls its lips - the corolla lobes."
