Another busy month has come and gone! Dan and I are in the throes of moving plans, preparing to vacate this house and settle into the new one at the end of the month. In between all that we’re trying to get some work done, and I’ve also been going out to help Dan with his fieldwork, which requires rising at 3:30am and unavoidably cuts into my evening blogging time. Whew! At least, once we’re moved, we should have a bit more time for things I hope. I’ve been continuing to post to my primary blog, The Marvelous in Nature, but my other pursuits are being squeezed.
For this edition of The Moth and Me, I thought I’d try something a little different. Included below are photos taken from each post. I haven’t given any details about any of the moths shown here for a reason. I’m offering a contest to readers: visit each link and find out the name of the moth (common is fine, scientific if no common is given), and the country that the moth is from (ie., the home country of the blog). Email me with your answers (sanderling [at] symbiotic [dot] ca) on or before Thursday June 25th. Include “TMaM contest” in your subject line so it doesn’t get lost in my inbox.
Everyone who has all of the answers correct will be entered into a draw for a $5 Amazon.com gift certificate (or the Amazon appropriate to your country). So okay, it’s not the $20,000 that Canon Canada is giving away, but I rather suspect your odds are better, and it certainly involves less work. And who wouldn’t like $5 off that book they’ve been eyeing for the last month?
Without further ado, the moths for this month. Good luck!
