Perhaps I should have named this The Biweekly Flypaper since it seems summer activities are conspiring against me, but hopefully I can get back on track soon.
(Inter)National Moth Week (NMW)
I don’t know if you noticed, but the Bug-osphere took (Inter)National Moth Week by storm and scaled new heights with their mothy contributions! Here’s but a sampling of the moth-related postings from my fellow bug bloggers.

The Home Bug Gardeners posted some great moths all week, and eventually found themselves as new moth-er enthusiasts.
The National Moth Week team had a whole suite of great posts during the week, as well as showing off some cool moth sidewalk art spotted in Ottawa.
Itsy Bitsy Beetle found a little moth street art of her own on a wall in Berkeley California.

Matt “the Biology Geek” Bergeron got ambitious and took on the micro moths.

And of course CaterpillarBlog joined in on the fun attending a mothing event organized by her and her lab mates.
