Finally, after many years of photographing bugs...  Some moths!  I checked and these 2006 images are the first ever moth pictures I've published.

White-tipped Black Moth

White-tipped Black Moth - Melanchroia chephise.  This is a rare "day flier."  Most moths are nocturnal, which is probably the reason this is the first picture of a moth that I've published as of August 2016.  Here's the link.

Cisseps fulvicollis - Yellow-collared Scape Moth

Boom, here's another moth from the back yard, August 2016.  This guy was flying around at 9:20 the morning; another day-flier.  Nikon D750 and 200mm f4 macro lens.  Bugguide link here.

Atteva aurea - Ailanthus Webworm Moth

Backyard November 18, 2016 on an basil flower.  Bugguide link here.

Elasmopalpus lignosellus - Lesser Cornstalk Borer

Another tiny moth from the backyard on the basil.  November 18, 2016.  Bugguide link here.

Female Sphinx Moth

Most likely a Female Mournful Sphinx Moth, Enyo lugubris (southern range).  That's according to here.  I've seen these during late morning and evening hours; this one was captured with the 500mm lens & flash on a Nikon D810A camera.  They can be confused with hummingbirds as their wings beat very fast, not really what you'd expect from a moth.

Nikon D750 and 200mm f4 macro lens.  Bugguide link here (different view, same bug).
