Night crew

After the sun goes down, a whole new night crew shows up at Monahans!

Time for the night crew to make their appearance!

Surprisingly to me, were these critters that came to the light after dark.

This was the most colorful moth of the night and there were quite a few of them. It is the Beautiful Sparganothis (Sparganothis pulcherremanni)!

Ten-lined June beetle (Polyphylla decemlineata) was a noisy one. It would flip itself upside down and make a lot noise righting itself.

A Long-horned Flower Beetle!

All of these photos were taken using a UV light. This was the most exciting event of the night when the scorpion caught the moth!

Keep looking!
