Thoughtful Thursday

[Tony Leukering chases down one of 29 moths identified to species at the first (to my knowledge) "Moth Party" of 2012, in a Cape May County backyard on Monday night. Note the black light (to attract the critters), sheet (for them to linger where we can see them), and the new Peterson moth book. Perhaps it is the Hollow-spotted Blaspharomastix, or maybe "just" a Common Lystrosis. . . .]

"Each planet, each plant, each butterfly, each moth, each beetle, becomes doubly real when you know its name."
