Point Pelee Bio-Blitz

At the Moth Light
July 21, 2018

Exciting night at the Point. One of the few times they allow moth lights, and it was a great show. Brock University students drove down from the Niagara area and set up a 400 watt light and a bed sheet. Very simple but effective. Mosquitoes were thick only for the first half hour, after that they left us alone. I managed to get one decent shot of a Snipe fly during the mosquito onslaught. The two photos of Tubeworm Moths show the difference between the dark fresh ones and older pale individuals. The dark one is a bit blurry, sorry.

Here’s what we found.
