Luna Moth Picture–Close up of Face!
April 2, 2010
Hi,
I was going through your luna moth page to see the what pictures you had and noticed that the last time you posted a close-up of a luna moth’s face was in 2005. That’s why I thought you might enjoy this picture I took last April. I assume that because of the bushy antennae that this is a male. After taking several photos, I put him back on the shed I found him on and a few hours later he was gone. In the fifteen years I’ve lived in Oklahoma, this is the only luna moth that I have found. Thanks for the great site.

Hi again Josh,
Thanks for resending this.  We remember seeing the photo last week, but we were too busy to post it.  You are correct.  This is a male.
