Things that fly at night

Things that fly at night

We went to the sugarhouse today to get a drum of Dark syrup to bottle, and noticed that the motion detector light at our sap collection building was illuminated. We stopped to turn it off, and observed quite a collection of moths of all sizes and colors. We would like some help in identifying these nocturnal insects.

The third picture is a curve-tooth geometer moth.

The second picture is a luna moth, the fourth is a rosella maple moth, and the last one is a sphinx moth of some sort – possible a one-eyed sphinx. I’ll see if I can come up with educated guesses for the other 3.

The green one is a Luna moth.
