A Yellow Swallowtail butterfly resting appropriately enough upon a purple butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) A lime green female Luna moth (Actias luna), one of the largest moths in North America with a wingspan of up to 4 1/2 inches. I first spotted this lady in a dogfight with a hungry sparrow. She won the battle but likely will lose the war since she is now missing one of her tapered hind-wings. They are not rare but are rarely seen due to their very brief adult lives. The adults do not eat or have mouths. They emerge as adults solely to mate, and as such, only live approximately one week.

One of the best 'fast food' burgers in the business. Bacon cheeseburger from Five Guys Burgers and Fries. While it's true this is a fast food/fast-casual chain, it should by no means be lumped in with the Burger Kings and McDonald's of the world. A damn tasty burger with plenty of topping choices for customization. Bibibop Asian Grill is the Asian equivalent of the Chipotle style of dining.
A bowl filled with wild purple rice, bean sprouts, sauteed potatoes, chicken, cucumber, lettuce, carrot, daikon, cheese, corn and egg topped with yum yum sauce. The edible fruit of the Korean Dogwood (Cornus kousa) with an appearance reminiscent of Cap'n Crunchberries. A ridiculously decadent chocolate salted caramel cupcake from GiGi's Cupcakes. New Year's Day buffet, Indian style! Please excuse my lack of knowledge on the names of any of these dishes. A personal highlight includes a dish with breaded and fried pickled baby corn in a spicy sauce. The American White Water Lily (Nymphaea odorata) with it pure white petals and up to 70 bright yellow stamens hanging out among the algae and its namesake pads. What may appear to the uninitiated as a giant pile of cheddar cheese is actually a Skyline Chili 5-way. Steaming spaghetti covered with secret recipe chili, onions, beans and topped with a mound of shredded cheddar cheese.

Housemade sweet potato and pumpkin bisque. The Oktoberfest Steakburger with swiss cheese, onions sauteed in mustard and thinly sliced Black Forest Ham on a pretzel bun. The Uptown Burger topped with bacon and pepper jack cheese on Texas toast. Corned beef hash topped with three fried eggs from the Westerville Grill located in, you guessed it, Westerville. A great diner in the uptown district. They also look to have a pretty tasty pie selection, but after consuming this plateful, pie was not an option. A perfectly white dinner plate dahlia with blooms of up to 12in diameter. There is great genetic variance within the dahlias mostly because they are octoploids, meaning they have eight sets of homologous chromosomes, whereas most plants are diploids. Bacon cheeseburger from Fitzy's Old Fashioned Diner. A classic 24/7 diner with all the fixings you'd expect. The only thing missing would be a milkshake, The Buckeye Smashburger topped with fried pepper rings, American cheese, haystack onions, lettuce, tomato and mayo on an egg bun with a side of garlic, rosemary and olive oil fries.

A chocolate sour cream cookie and a peanut butter/peanut butter cup cookie from the suisse shop. The monte cristo from Westerville Grill; Two thick slices of French toast loaded with deli-sliced turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese grilled to golden perfection with a side of sweet potato tots. El Super Taco-nazo is a big yellow taco truck located in the parking lot of a pawn shop. Not easy to see from the road, but worth the effort to find. Here is a trio of pork tacos; carnitas, chorizo and chicharron with the usual suspects of accoutrements; onion, cilantro, radishes, a lemon wedge and a char-grilled poblano pepper. Stuffed biscuits and gravy. Biscuit dough filled with sausage, onions, green peppers and cheese topped with sausage gravy and two sunny side up eggs. Key lime pie.

Lost Highway burger with red onions, habanero jack cheese and a fried egg on a toasted pretzel bun.

Chewy chocolate and oatmeal with butterscotch cookies! Sambusa with spiced beef and vegetable fillings. An abandoned mini golf course next to the Days Inn. Thai Burrito, chips, peanut sauce on the side, and iced black tea. A cool old neon sign atop Capri Lanes. Not is the shiny happiest of neighborhoods, but a good place to bowl cheap.
