July 23-29 is National Moth Week

If you're in the Marathon area for the Gages's Birds & Butterflies festivities, why not stick around an extra day or two for the kickoff of National Moth Week?

Not that we're participating or anything... (yes, yes we are!)

Not going to be in our neck of the woods? There's probably something near you. Check out National Moth Week locations - and if there's nothing near you but you still want to participate, snag a blacklight and a pale wall or a white sheet and you're good to go!

Here's our super-fancy setup... plus a porch light to the right (also a blacklight).

...and here's one of the results: Halysidota davisii, 19 June 2012

(This post will also be at the top of our blog until NMW - please scroll down for more recent posts!)

Edit: Bug Girl's Blog now has a lovely NMW post up; check it out!
