Pinesaps, AKA False Beechdrops, are pushing up their tannish-yellow saprophytic flower clusters. Each cluster has from 3 - 10 flowers. Despite being sometimes referred to as False Beechdrops they are found under Pines and Oaks.
And a female Gypsy Moth glued her egg mass to the side of my house. Her usual choice would be a tree trunk. Female Gypsy moths are nearly flightless. The smaller brown males do all the visiting. This species was introduced from Europe in the late 1860's and have become widespread.
