I’ve never seen a moth like this before here in Middle Tennessee. What is he? Is he migrating??? Thanks!

Luna Moth

Dear Curious Lady,
The unmistakable Luna Moth is a local species for you that ranges in the eastern portions of North America from Florida to Maine.  There are two generations in the southern portion of the range and the earlier sightings each year for your area are probably in late March through April.
