I live in Dutchess County, NY, and today I spotted my first Luna Moth (a male), hanging out on my screen door. I tried to relocate it to a nearby tree, but it wanted none of that. In fact, when I approached it with my camera, it got so scared it started shaking. Nonetheless, I managed a few pictures of it anyway, albeit with my cameraphone, and thought I’d share them with you since I just discovered your wonderful site. I should start one for birds, although it’d be far less challenging!
P.S. There are two images in this zip file: one is of the moth on the woodchips under the bush and the other is when it was on the concrete step in front of my door.
Thanks for the photo.
