Luna Moth

Dear Naomi,
Thanks for your comment and also for submitting your image.  This is our first Luna Moth sighting this year.  Generally we received our first sighting report in late January or February and that sighting comes from the south, including Texas and Georgia, and as spring moves north, the sightings continue, including sightings from Maine in June.  We are curious why there is such a dearth of Luna Moth sightings this spring.
