Marvelous Munchies

With the advent of spring we are getting some warmer days tossed in with some pretty chilly ones. On the warmer evenings the moths are starting to show up at our porch light. Moths are an extremely significant food source in spring for bats, owls and many, many birds. The bats, owls and birds feed upon the adult moths and in later spring the caterpillars from the moths make a up a major portion of many a baby birds diet. What many people think of as a pest is a very important link in our environment. Here is one I found just outside our front door this morning. It was very easy to photograph as it was pretty chilly out and it wasn't wanting to fly anywhere. God's love and blessings upon your week, chris Image created with a Canon 7D MkII and a 100mm macro lens. The camera was supported with a Manfrotto 055 XPROB tripod with a Bogen 3055 heavy duty ballhead. The camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 800, F 16.0 at 1/40th of a sec.#TeamCanon
