This morning before work, I noticed a luna moth on my neighbor’s window. I was in a rush, so I wasn’t able to go get a camera.
I was pleased to find that it was still there when I got home! I’m pretty sure this area is within their natural range (Gainesville, FL) but I don’t remember ever seeing one around here before.
Since I’m almost certain this is a luna moth, there’s no need to identify it, but hopefully the pictures are nice enough to keep!

The Luna Moth most certainly ranges in Florida, though this is the first Floridian example we have received this year.
