I saw this ”Moth” clinging to the top of a chain linked fence at a place where I shop. I thought it was a green leaf, until it flapped it’s wings. The edges were browned and it had a long and wide greenish tail. It’s belly was white. I am familiar with a few moths, but have never seen one like this. Can you tell me what it was I had seen?

Dear Very Curious in Houston,
This is a female Luna Moth.  Hopefully she has mated and can find a place to lay her eggs.
