Hi Jennifer,
Many folks believe the Luna Moth is the lovliest North American Moth, but certainly it is the most distinctive looking North American moth as it doesn’t even remotely resemble any other species that is within our range.  Adults do not feed and only live long enough to mate and reproduce.  Your individual is a male as evidenced by his more feathery antennae.
