Half Way to 1000

Large Tolype Moth

As of 14 September, I'm exactly halfway to 1000 species for the month.  The species count has slowed down the last few days as I've been busy with my folks visiting from Oregon.  But I've still managed a few new species each day, and at the end of the 14th I was at 500 species even--exactly halfway to my goal.

Some interesting species the last few days include the Large Tolype moth--a fantastic fuzzy creature that I found hanging out under the lights on my garage, and the Kentucky Bluegrass growing in Yankee Stadium :-)
