I haven't been down there for a while but I remember when we would go to GMI on the May long weekend, we would stop at the Irving at the Blacks Harbour turnoff and before going in for tea, we would check out the side wall where the floresent light would be, it was always covered with moths, many types of which my favorite the Luna Moth would be in good numbers.   Anyone else seen this Moth Wall at the Irving?

I've been on the West Coast for 8 days and have not followed the discussions -- in fact I deleted over 250 messages unread I received from many sources, including Birding NB. So, sorry if this has been posted, but here is a link to the flickr group regarding National Moth Week. Some of you moth-ers might be interested.

Do you know what this is called?

Comment by Joanne Savage on January 10, 2016 at 7:10pm

Here there is a computer desk in our rec. room [wrecked room perhaps], on the desk are many bird books, and one moth book. My 'work station' in the living room holds various knitted and crocheted  items which I'm doing for daus-in-law.

I would love to have a work area/office!! :) 

Impressive collection for the museum, Tony

Comment by Chris Adam on January 10, 2016 at 4:09pm

Very neat and Tidy, Tony. An office of a professional. Almost TOO neat and tidy, but ... Oops, I have resolved to be nicer this year, so watch out. Here's an image of my workplace/study, taken just a few minutes ago. Comparisons welcome. Don't look too closely.

Comment by Tony on January 10, 2016 at 3:22pm

Sorting through some old images I came across this one from 2008.

part of my work area- a lot tidier then than now!

The cabinets with all the drawers contain moths; another wall of drawers, not seen, on the right.

Am in the process of moving the moths to the NB Museum, about 4,000 already donated - about 16,00 (or more) to go!
