Hello! Have you registered for National Moth Week yet? National Moth Week is a global citizen science event that celebrates the amazing biodiversity of moths. This year, National Moth Week is July 19 to July 27! Your state, South Carolina, is not on the map yet! Looking for moths near an outside light is all you need to do. You can register for a private or public and find more information at It would be great if you are interested in participating. If you add a spotting to the “Moths of the World” mission of a moth found during National Moth Week, you will contribute to important citizen science data! The mission can be found here: Feel free to contact me with any questions via comments here or in an email:

Black Racer Shark teeth finds from today's beach trip. 9 o'clock could be some stingray barbs. I found something else really cool that looked like a vertebrae or something strange. Will see if I can get a decent pic if it. Lots of little teeth! Fun times.  :) Unknown spotting Praying Mantis
