Ants farming cicadellid nymphs:

Arum lily:
ߎ"It's getting hot in here, so hot, so take off all your clothes -
Theme song of the aroid. Arum lilies are able to raise the temperature inside their inflorescence (in the eastern skunk cabbage this can be by up to 35 degrees C above ambient temps) in a process called thermogenesis. Each species of aroid has a different optimum temperature specific to its natural environment and its pollinators. This energetic process uses a mitochondrial respiration pathway and has been demonstrated to have the same energetic requirements as a hummingbird in flight. The higher temperatures are thought to increase the volatility of aromatic, malodorous compounds to attract pollinators. So the next time your romantic skeptic friends tell you that "love stinks", you can tell them to put in their request as an arum lily for their next reincarnation, so that that "stink of love" can be music to their ears.

Lovely stuff Paul. Took me a while to work out the shape of the katydid but still not spotted the moth.

Moth is in the bottom right hand corner, diagonal leaf vein that looks like a slightly bent leaf which marks the wing division.

As others have already noted, can't find the moth - even with directions. Incredible - unless you're just messing with us. ;-)a
