There has been plenty of action at the moth trap the last couple of nights. The following are just the few I selected for a closer look.
Photos #1, (#4 ), #6, #7, (#8 & #9), and #11 are all new records for my backyard. Some of these I've not yet identified even though two of them are large and well marked species. Hopefully someone may be able to help.
The Pyralid in photos #1 & #2 was interesting for the way it positions itself at rest. To the naked eye it seemed to be balancing on it's wing tips. A closer view through the lens shows that the front legs do not even touch the ground.
