Bishop Museum insect collection, Honolulu

I was very excited to be allowed to photograph extinct insect specimens at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, thanks to Jim Boone, entomology collections manager. After I finished at the museum, I flew to the Big Island to photograph the ocean and rocks and volcanoes. It was one of the most amazing places I’ve been.

Agrotis procellaris, or Procellaris gratis noctuid moth, very likely extinct.
