That's a great name! Mine's called Moth Mania. The county park where I'm holding it is putting it in all the area news papers and all over Facebook. I have no idea what kind of people and how many people will be there.. I'm kind of nervous about it haha.

Hey, Lucky ... someone earlier tonight, I've forgotten who, referred to their mothing event as a "moth ball" ... thought that was a fun thing to call it!

I'll let you know if I do. Have a great time with your event! Sounds like fun!

I'm hosting a mothing event for NMW so I want to get really familiar with what's out there :) If you spotted the cat, I'd love to see it!

Some really nice moths you are putting up Logan. Really nice shots. This one is absolutely beautiful. I've only found their caterpillars, but never an actual moth. Nice!
