National Moth Week, July 19-27

Moths, moths, moths — I am more than a little crazy about them.
Then I come to find out: there’s a National Moth Week every summer! This year it spans July 19-27.

National Moth Week, July 19-27

I’ve gathered my gear (nothing fancy, just white sheets, hanging work lights, and the clothesline) and I’m going to set up as often as I can (weather-permitting), and get the kids involved. Lots of moths to photograph and identify!

If you’re interested in moth-watching in your own back yard, check out this PDF on “How to start mothing” from mothscount.org

Moth Series: Moved to Flickr

Nerd alert! In case you didn’t already know: one of the more studious hobbies I enjoy is photographing and classifying (and hanging out at night getting swarmed by) moths. I decided to clear out my Flickr account and dedicate it wholly to this pursuit. It’s coming along nicely; I’ve got about half of my photos from 2005 thru now edited, identified and posted. There are some really awesome moths! Check them out!
