Field Guide=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification
While other nature lovers might go bird watching, David Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie go mothing, with a sheet and a lamp to attract the bugs. Here, they share their vast knowledge in the most comprehensive guide to moths on the market.

There are more than 1,500 species of moths in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. Many have swirls and swaths of pinks, yellows, and violets. There are moths with colorful leopardlike spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens than the moths we try to keep out of our closets.

With helpful tips on how to set up a moth trap, range maps, and graphs showing when each species is in flight, as well as photographs that have been silhouetted and arranged onto plates for easy comparison, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs. Let the mothing revolution begin!
