We did do a few other things besides moths. We took the “Three Bench Walk” – up to the top of the bluff, and through our largest prairies – about 4 miles.

We put up the lights that night, and attracted lots of moths, and a few other creatures.
This is a caddisfly – probably in the genus Nectopsyche. Adult caddisflies have wedge-shaped wings and very long antennae. They’re very common at my lights.
And a small grasshopper
Here are the moths. I’ve labeled them with common names – to see the scientific names, hover your mouse over the photos. Click on a picture to see the larger version.
