I missed Moth Monday last week because I was busy packing for my move back to Brooklyn, as well as trying to squeeze in just a few more state birds in California. I didn’t quite hit 300, but Little Blue Heron and Semipalmated Sandpiper were still nice additions.
I’m now back in New York. Federal Express hasn’t dropped off the Firewire disk where I store my raw photos; but here’s a JPEG from 2007; and in honor of my return, it’s from Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. This is Hodges 7132, the Common Tan Wave Moth:
