Thorny Subjects

A beautiful day turned into a beautiful evening followed by a mild night so plenty of moths around and after getting 9 species new to my garden last night I was hopeful that something else new might turn up tonight. Not long after I put the trap out a Dusky Thorn was sitting in it quickly followed by a Canary-Shouldered Thorn and it was still only 9:45!, of course the luck pretty much ran out there and I only got one other new species all night after the 2 Thorns but plenty of moths in total.
The trap was out from 9:20pm till 3:40am
