I found this strange moth this morning on the 1st of June just outside our door. I absolutely had to take pictures! Having found your site it didn’t take very long to identify this very distinguished creature. What a gorgeous oddity!

Dear Northern Ontarian,
We are quite envious that you have had the good fortune to observe a Luna Moth in its natural state. Perhaps our editorial staff will be lucky as we are headed to Northeast Ohio for a week and despite growing up there, we have never seen a living Luna Moth in the wild. We also hope our visit will coincide with the annual appearance of Fireflies.
