How We Got Started

Moths of Pennsylvania

  How We Got Started
It all began back in 1998 when my grandmother caught a Luna Moth on her back porch (she lives right next door to me), and brought it over to show me. I was taken by its appearance, having never learned anything about butterflies or moths before. I took the lid off  the jar my grandma had put it in and it flew away. From that moment, the Luna has been my favorite Lepidoptera, and I was hooked on butterflies and moths. I took this old fishing net we had and set out in search of butterflies. Soon, my mom bought me a nicer net and a small book on butterflies and moths, and as I learned more Ben got into it as well. Before long, we were seriously pursuing the leps with nice nets and good books, and that's how we got to where we are.         -Adam Schroeder
