Luna Moth

Dear Tim,
This gorgeous creature is a Luna Moth and we have been tracking the emergence of Luna Moths in the more northern latitudes as the weather warms and spring conditions come to the higher latitudes.  There is no need to move.  The Luna Moth is perfectly harmless.

    We found one on our porch in Florida today. This is the second time I’ve seen them in the last 4 years.

    I have these at my house I see several every year. I live in Faber, Virginia. They are fascinating!
