Here are more pix from Moth Night, including the pic above of an Isabella Tiger Moth (which once was a Wooly Bear Caterpillar).
The event included a talk and slide show by Elena Tartaglia of National Moth Week, some moth baiting on trees outside DeKorte Park’s Meadowlands Environment Center, and three moth collection sheets — two Mercury Vapor Lamps and one black light.
One of the fun aspects of events like this is the other cool bugs you see while looking for moths. These included a fresh cicada exoskeleton, a native Stinkbug, and a nifty spider.
Next up: Butterfly Day this Sunday, DeKorte Park, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free and family-friendly.
