Backyard insects 2013 : Now that the snow is gone, I have started to get out and explore what lurks in the night once everyone is sound asleep. I set up a white bed sheet, strong light and my camera to capture these creatures of the night. I plan to only photograph, no collecting of insects. Most are small beetles, flies and moths. Every night is different, you never know what you will get. Most of the moths were identified using the " Peterson Field Guide to Moths" by Davis Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie, the online guide (BAMONA)  Butterflies and Moth of North America and the digital moth guide at http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/WalkThroughIndex.shtml based out of Mississippi State University. The others insects I have to be more creative, www.bugguide.net is a great resource. If any of my identification are incorrect, please let me know.

I have tried to include only one, or two pictures at most for each species I have seen. Enjoy!
