    Favorite entry so far!
    The diversity of moths is always so mind-boggling. Sphingids are my favorite family! And I think (with my limited knowledge) that the third moth down is in the family Geometridae. That is as broad a classification as one can go, really, but it is something : )
    The tropics is just too intimidating to go any further!
    Beautiful images. If you have a blacklight, one way to potentially get early morning “goodies” is to leave it out for the night and then check the surrounding vegetation in the morning – most of the visitors will have already gone (or munched by birds), but there are almost always a few hanging out on leaves in the morning chill. And they are often the most toxically colorful too – : )
