Even Little Brother gets involved and likes to hold a moth on his finger. This Common Wainscot, which he called Yellow, was quite happy on his finger for about 20 minutes, before it (wisely) made a break for it.

I was surprised how many moths were in the trap. Most were different varieties from the small brown club. Some of those are quite pretty and have intricate patterns on their wings and some are bright orange. We also got several Large Yellow Underwings and a couple of Broad-bordered Yellow Underwings.

We also caught one Autumn Thorn. I love the shape of their wings and the way they hold them up in the air.
