Still very few moths

I had just one moth in the light trap on the 28th.  However, it was a new species for the year.  This is a very difficult group of moths to identify from photographs but I’m guessing at Agrotis vancouverensis.  I didn’t put the light trap out last night because of the threat of rain.  This, of course, meant that it was dry overnight...!  Oh well. The weather for tonight looks a little iffy as well.  Because of the lack of photographs I’ve added a Calliope Hummingbird photograph that I took during the week.  This one put on quite an aerobatic display while defending it’s territory against another male hummingbird.
