Lloyd and Sandy find a big moth

A few days ago Lloyd and Sandy Spitalnik found and photographed a sizable moth near Turtle Pond. This species has also been making appearances at the Moth Tree near the Boathouse during the last week, at least a week before any of the big Underwings are due to arrive [if they do arrive this year. Last year they were conspicuous by their absence.] This one is a Lunate Zale [Zale lunata] and its picture is above.

Hope for moths to come


HAPPY Fourth of July
