Hi I saw a large flying bug that looked kind of like a bat but it has green wings like a leaf and a long tail. I thought it was a bat when I saw it flying around my patio, but when it came close to the window I saw that it looked like a big leaf. I’m sorry the picture is so dark, it ws at night around 10pm. I’m in Petersburg Virginia.

Dear Miss Vee,
As you have indicated, your image is dark, but it is also quite blurry and really not much help when it comes to identification, however your description indicates that you most likely saw a Luna Moth.
