Moth Party

Last week I did a little program about moths at the nature center I work at (it was National Moth Week).  I "painted" a number of trees with a mix of bananas, honey, syrup, fermented apple sauce and rum extract to attract moths.  After the program was over I went out and photographed as many of the moths as I could.  I think the pictures turned rather well considering the fact that I just used my iPhone and a handheld led light.
