Your letter to the bugman:  I don’t need this identified but thought I would share! Found this gem last night attached to my screen door. I was amazed by it’s beauty. After looking online I figured out it is a Luna Moth. Woke up this morning and he was on the wooden door frame of my screen door so I got some better pics of it. The pics I took last night didn’t turn out very good so I was excited when I saw he was still here!

Dear Gene,
We are so excited that your submission is our first Luna Moth posting of the year, though one can only guess how many Luna Moth submissions arrived between April 21 when Daniel last checked his emails and now.  Canadian sightings are occur around June, and our earliest sightings, sometimes as early as January or February, are generally from Texas and Florida.

Luna Moth

Dear Rhiannon,
Thanks for your comment and your submission.  How marvelous that this was your first Luna Moth sighting of the year, indicating that you have had sightings in years past.  Many of our readers, even those who live within the range of the Luna Moth, are never fortunate enough to experience a sighting of this glorious insect.  Alas, the artificial light under which this image occurred has desaturated the lovely green color of the Luna Moth.
