This photo, sent in by Cathy Houle Barrows, is perfect for National Moth week and is a great demonstration of why we encourage you to leave your porch light on during the spring and summer months. The white moths (to the left) are Satin Moths (Leucoma salicis); the beauty at the top center is the Garden Tiger Moth or Great Tiger Moth (Arctia caja); the small yellowish moths are Sulphur Knapweed Moths (Agapeta zoegana); and the medium-sized moth at the very bottom is the Spotted Tussock Moth (Lophocampa maculate).
