Moths of Huntedon County exhibit – Guest post by Jill Dodds

Hunterdon County Library will celebrate National Moth Week with a moth-themed display at their Headquarters site, which is located at 314 State Route 12 in Flemington, New Jersey.

The exhibit will be located on the lower level of the library, and will feature photographs of 70 moths that are known to frequent Hunterdon County backyards.  Visitors will get a glimpse of the incredible diversity in size, shape, color and pattern that may be seen in our local moths, while learning a bit about their habits and behavior.  They will also have an opportunity to vote for their favorite moth!

The display will open on July 7 and will continue through mid-August.  The library is open from 9:00am-5:00 pm on Monday, Friday and Saturday and from 9:00am-9:00pm Tuesday through Thursday.  (Closed on July 4 and on Sundays).

Images for the exhibit were provided by Jill Dodds, a biologist and nature photographer who resides in Hunterdon County.  All of the moths on display are species that she has found in her hometown.  Some of her favorite nature photos, including moths from other parts of New Jersey, may be seen on her blog at http://jillsdodds.tumblr.com/
