Where has the Week Gone



Possible Spotted Beet Webworm Moth
July 21, 2018
Danby, NY
I can tell that I am having a busy week at work. I am coming home tired and have not snapped an image on my phone since the one on Monday morning of the bushes to be recycled loaded and ready in my truck.

Some weeks are just like that, busy. It does make the work days fly by, however.

I was reviewing my images from the past month and ran across this moth/butterfly imaged in Upstate NY. I did my best to identify it and believe that it may be a spotted beet webworm moth. I thought the identification would be very easy given the white spot on the underside, however, the identification charts seem only to show the top view of the insects.

I have not flown Radio Flyer in almost two weeks! Although my drone accompanied me on the weekend trip to Antietam and Harper's Ferry, it is not legal to fly in a National Park Service controlled area. I would have flown around the hotel we stayed in, but it just wasn't not that photogenic.

I hope to change that this evening. It is Thursday.

As an aside, the Orioles are 5-5 for their past 10 games and have lowered their expected loss total to 112! How exciting is that? They remain the 30th best team in MLB and are only 1.5 games from being the 29th best team.
