New Hampshire Moths

I’m in the woods and we’re surrounded by nature. As I work at my computer in the evenings, I hear insects thudding against the window screens. They’re attracted by the light filtering through the mini-blinds.

A friend shared some photos with me. This is probably what I’d see if I went out in the dark to investigate the sounds.

I’ve seen a number of these around. Gail said, “The Rosy Maple Moth visited on Sunday June 15th.”

Here’s some info about the luna moth that she found: “The Luna Moth came on Sunday and stayed until last evening. From what we’ve read she was calling a mate to fertilize her eggs. She must have been hungry last night and left, they fly only at night. Pretty special if you ask us!”
