One of our members, Frank Pierce, has been recording the Moths on the Co-op for several years. Most are almost impossible to find during the day, but fortunately many are attracted to light at night where they settle and are easily photographed.

Over 480 species have been identified.

You can see more of the beautiful and unusual Moths found on the Co-op on our new Moths web page.
