  1. I went out to put the film in my trailcam at 10 pm on 1 June and one of these, or something shaped like it, but white, with a long swallowtail, swooped around my flashlight. It wad bigger than my hand. Was it a luna moth?

  2. I took pictures of a Luna Moth on my white door frame this morning.
    It is a beautiful moth. Sad it will only live a week.

  4. We had this beautiful huge light green moth fluttering outside our deck glass doors tonight at 11:30 pm and it kept trying to go towards a lamp inside the house. That was the coolest moth we’ve ever seen. It made the small moths on the window look like ants compared to its size. I really hope he comes back to visit. What an interesting insect!

    • It had the wings similar to an angel and so far has not returned. I think a bat may have spotted it fluttering as we do have bats near my deck.?

  5. Had a huge luna moth on my back deck this morning. I am in Lisbon CT. The wingspan had to be well over 4”. Is this native to the area?
