July 14: Eagle Hill Institute, Moth dump

Spent a good part of today sorting through a pile of moths from a trap that was set in a field last night. We sorted them by family and then tried to identify genus and species. By bedtime, squadrons of dead moths were lined up and labeled--immersion learning at its best.
Sphinx moths stare at us
over their new labels--
order from chaos.
