I'm so glad someone started a site dealing with Moths to go along with all the other very welcome additions that have branched off the birding site .

So much info to be found !

Glad you found this, Denis. Welcome. This was started this morning just because i got those great (ahem) pics of the sphinx moth and i wanted to be more organized in showing them off. There are now three members: me at work, you, and me at home.

I walked out my front door at 10:30 last night and saw this lovely Laurel Sphinx (Sphinx kalmiae) at my feet. It posed demurely for several portraits.
