I read recently that you may also capture moths, and leave them in your refrigerator (in a ventilated container) over night to chill them, and make them sluggish in the morning.
It works wonderfully!
I have several species waiting for me to photograph today!
I will especially have to try the sugaring to attract them though.
Thank you for the recipe!

Hi, That's a good tip! Of course you know we should handle all moths gently to avoid damaging their wings.
Hope you get some good shots--maybe we'll see them in BugFiles or the ID forum. Good luck and thanks for commenting.

I see you have been busy! Good of you to help fill in BugFiles--that can be a lot of work all that editing cropping etc- well when I take pictures I usually have a lot of editing cropping etc. You sure have a great assortment of moths up there "in the woods"

Thank you, and I absolutely love where I live!!!
I have a ton more pictures to upload yet!
I love filling in the bug files, and I crop and edit, and upload to my deviantart as well, so I might as well do both at once, right? =D
