Below are photos I've taken of some of the more spectacular moths that have come to our house lights here in Maryland. These represent but a few of the 300+ moths in my photographic collection. Eventually most of those photos will be presented on this website in another format so it will be easy to retrieve any particular moth photo from the list. Until that time, enjoy the colorful moths below!
