Hi Larry, please can you create a separate spotting for each species so we can identify them all for you. I've also moved this to arthropods - all insects, spiders & crustaceans like crabs & crayfish belong in this category.
Awesome photos by the way!

Beautiful moth, Larry! I have suggested an ID with the correct scientific name. Could you add this to my mission, Moths of the World - National Moth Week:
