Of Moths and Phillies

Polythemus Moth

Check out Jim Wright’s post on a Polyphemus Moth and how it relates, well, somewhat, to a certain Philadelphia Phillies baseball player. You can read the post on Jim’s Celery Farm and Beyond blog.

Speaking of moths, mark your calendar for the NJSEA’s annual Moth Night at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. This year’s event is on Monday, July 25, from 8:30 to 10 pm. The night includes a presentation by Dr. Elena Tartaglia on these spectacular yet misunderstood cousins of butterflies. Industrial-strength lamps and white sheets will be set up in DeKorte Park and sugar bait will be used to attract moths for easier viewing. Register for the free event here.
