At the sheet

Here are some of my favorite shots from blacklighting last night.

Moths and other insects swarming around the light.

A pretty golden eyed lacewing (family Chrysopidae)- I haven’t seen one of these insects in a while.

A cute little mantisfly (family Mantispidae)! I love these guys. Who can resist those mischievous eyes and raptorial forelegs?

I called this moth the “fuzzy monster”. I’m having a hard time identifying this one, since I only got a shot of the legs and not the tops of the wings. Any guesses?
