I just wrapped up the April edition of The Moth and Me, and invite everyone to head over to check it out. The really busy mothing period in the northern hemisphere has yet to kick into gear, while the moths down under are starting to thin out, but there are still a good number of interesting mothy posts.
The next edition is May 15, with submissions due to me by May 13. We’re just starting to enter the really good spring mothing here in Ontario, and folks further south should already be seeing lots flying. I encourage everyone to go out one warm evening between now and the next carnival with a light bulb and a white sheet, and see what you get! I bet you’ll be surprised. (If you want to invest $5, try picking up a black light from Home Depot to double your “catch”! I find the compact fluorescent type work better than the incandescents.) If you don’t know your moths, that’s okay! You can submit the images to BugGuide.net, or otherwise blog about it and tag me in the post or leave me a comment, and I’ll see if I can help out with IDs (no guarantees, but I’ll do my best!).
