Found today while gathering acorns (swamp white oak). How adorable is this? I love her little feet, and the way she pivots around her proboscis, fascinated by how far her head rotates… Curculio sp. (if anyone can ID to species, please add!)
here’s a list of edible invasive species! (courtesy of wikipedia, so don’t consider this a guide on preparation or anything!) you’re interested at all in foraging, want to provide your own food but can’t grow it, or just want to help the environment, this is a great way! it both helps natural habitats and gets you food for free!
