An impromptu bug jar

We are in the desert for a few days.  I didn't bring any containers, because I wasn't planning on collecting any bugs on this trip, but I did put out my black light and sheet last night, even though it was really windy.  I ended up attracting a single moth!   I decided to bring it in for a better look. This wine glass, paired with a small plastic lid, did the trick in a pinch. 

 I released the moth back into the windy night after I took this picture.  I've decided it's too windy for the blacklight tonight.  More desert bug photos to come...
