In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.

This morning I was happy to see another moth at our porch light, after I’d had my first macro moth just yesterday on Day 119. This time it was a light colored, a white-beige color. It’s been cloudy the last couple of nights and I’ve read that moths fly more readily on nights that don’t have a full moon and are clear, so perhaps it’s not such a coincidence there have been two, two nights in a row. I’m tempted to turn on the black light tonight, but I’m afraid if I do none will show up all. Maybe I should just try my luck with the porch light again.
