A field guide to the most common moth species in northeastern North America. While other nature lovers might go bird watching, the authors David Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie go mothing, with a sheet and a lamp to attract the bugs. Here, they share their vast knowledge in a comprehensive and easy-to use guide. There are more than 1,500 species of moths in the Northeast. While it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety of colors, shapes and sizes. This guide has everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs, including range maps, photos, helpful tips on how to set up a moth trap, graphs showing when each species is in flight, and silhouettes on the color plates showing the moths’ actual sizes. Happy moth watching!  Paperback.
