PFG to Moths contest winner

First off, thanks to everyone who sent in answers to the cover species and/or blogged and tweeted about the contest! I got a great response from folks, and I was pleased to see how well everyone did. Even considering the lack of a full printed field guide to live-image moths. ;) I went through everyone’s entries, put your names in a hat, and the winner of a signed copy of the new Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America is…

Jennifer Hansen!

Congratulations, Jennifer! I’m afraid you’ll still have to wait a little while before receiving your copy, but rest assured it’ll be coming. :)

For those of you who didn’t win but would still like a copy, don’t forget that you can now preorder the book from Amazon.com.

  1. NJ represent!

  2. Whilst looking for a photo (on Google) of Figure Seven Moth I stumbled across your webpage – having just received the newly published moth field guide (I am a friend of Dave Beadle from England) it was quite a surprise to see both the new book and your name. Just thought I’d say hi and well done with the book.
