All photos taken in Ogemaw Co. Michigan unless otherwise noted. All species are live and free roaming. Many species are represented more than once, showing that moths vary in appearance at different stages of their life cycle. Lighting can also affect appearance, making identifications even more challenging. The photographs in these galleries are for documentation purposes only; the older images were taken with point/shoot cameras that suited my needs for night photography well at the time.
*Please excuse the ongoing construction; editing photos then identifying, tagging and labeling each image is quite a tedious project. For the time being, the galleries are in the family order found in 'Moths of Eastern North America' by Charles Covell Jr. I have hundreds of images to add to the galleries in the future, and many of the photos still need to be sorted into the correct genus.*
