Two new Canadian records

There were a couple of observations from Ontario recently that represented new Canadian records. One was a larval sighting of this cool looking Curve-lined Owlet by Josh Vandermeulen (@josh_vandermeulen) in Point Pelee National Park. The second was of the Box Tree Moth by Karen Yukich (@kyukich) in Toronto, Karen's observation was followed a couple of days later by an observation from Dave Beadle (@dbeadle), also from Toronto. The sightings of the invasive Box Tree Moths are also likely North American firsts and were profiled in this iNaturalist blog posting.

Karen's observation can be seen here and Dave's can be seen here. There are likely more notable observations out there, but these came to my attention, so please feel free to let me know if you have something unique
