Moth-a-palooza!

    The last week of July provided lovely evening for checking out moths in our yard. 
We set up an old black light fixture that the boys had for Halloween years ago, and waited for the show. 
    Within minutes, the critters were arriving! First were the small fellows...mostly gnats and tiny moths. Later, about an hour after dark, the larger moths began to arrive. Here's a collection of my favorites.
