And on the third night...the sugar was still holding up

Had the ingredients, but didn't have the time to mix up a new batch of sugaring mixture.
So, off I went to see how effective the bait would be on the third night of application.
Within 30 minutes of sunset, a few moths started to arrive.
These are the photos I got (look like more Sallows? I will make further attempts to ID soon).
IDing these moths is not as easy as one would think. Even with the incredible resources available at: http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/
It seems akin to trying to ID songbirds during Fall migration. Or Similar to trying to ID Sparrows AKA "Little brown jobs". Thankfully, there are some great Web sites out there that are a tremendous help. I will continue to put in a modest effort to ID them, but please forgive the fact that most are unidentified.
