For moths you can often get away with a nice top view only, but with a lot of insects it's much harder, and a side view or face view is needed as well... in general, see if you can get alternate angles as well, in case they're needed.

I've also noticed a lot of your photos are quite dark, which can make things harder to ID. Have you tried using flash? You have to avoid getting glarey reflections, but it might help you get a definite ID on some that would otherwise be left uncertain.

Keep up the good work, anyhow - you're finding a good range of moths, at least. :o)
