... not in NB but still an interesting read. Was discovered by a Canadian. It has a fancy hairdo. The discoverer of new species has the honour of naming it. You can see a pic and read about it here…Continue

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?

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

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.

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!

Thanks for the link Tony. The images sure pale in comparison to yours.  I ran across a video, and got all excited.  It turned out they were dissecting a caterpillar. That was a disappointment!  

Also happy there isn't an exam lol
