Checked on the MC when I got home from work and it was out of the barn. Guess 55 degrees was the number. I also saw 10 moths of 2 species at the sugar bait after sunset. The picture is of a Shivering Pinion, Lithophane querquera.

Mid-morning, low 50's and full sun although there were still patches of snow. After being unsuccessful trying to get a photo of the comma, I was not going to let the second anglewing get away. It flew up and down the road, sometimes landing in the woods. After 5 minutes, I thought I saw it land and snapped a long distance shot. Sure enough, I could find the bug when I blew the shot up. Eventually, I approached close enough to get an identification shot.

[Two FOYs back-to-back. Good work! jc]

Brought the roosting Mourning Cloak out for a February picture. It will be interesting to see how warm it needs to be for it to break dormancy.

[Intriguing! Let us have an update when you have the chance. jc]
