Moths At My Light

I tried something new last night.  I put the deck light on and waited a bit and then went out to check what was attracted to the light.  I didn't have that much show up, but I was only able to identify two of them anyway!

 Painted Lichen Moth

Rose Plume Moth

It may take me awhile to identify the rest of these.  Not bad for the first time.  It takes a different set of camera skills and will take some time to learn and recognize moths.

Double-Banded Grass Veneer

Obscure Psara (I think)


  1. Oh dear Dawn. Once you start you won't be able to stop!! Now you will need to buy a good ID book and find a local expert to help you with the identifications.

    1. You are probably right, although I am definitely a person who requires a good night's sleep. That may be the only roadblock.
