Fall is Here!

Fall is here and our temperatures are steadily dropping! I'm still getting a few Leps here and there, but its getting to be that time of year. I changed job positions back in August, and getting used to it put a bit of a damper on my photo taking at the time, but I'm still trying to do daily walks out to the lights around the workplace when I can! (My new job gets me out to them early which is nice!)
I've been working with some of my local naturalists to expand our lepidoptera count, by going through my photos, and getting them identified. I started here on iNaturalist, but they've requested that I submit my findings over on BAMONA as well, so I've been working on it! I feel like I've added at least 7 or so species to our local list so far!
If anyone would be available to help on identifications, I still have quite a few 'unidentified' that could probably be confirmed by the right people, so if you have the knowledge, and wouldn't mind having a look, we would really appreciate it!

As my new photos slow down with the season, I am going to return to delving into my older photos as well.
Thanks everyone!
Ash
