I found this bug today at my work.
This beautiful creature is a Luna Moth. One of our yearly activities is to track Luna Moth sightings as they move from the southern portion of the range in Texas and Florida in the early months of the year to the northern portion of the range in Maine and Canada by May and June as spring warmth moves to northern latitudes. Your Kentucky sighting is our most northern this year.
We have had VERY unusual warm weather EARLY. The whole month of February felt like April.
