I’ve been hoping to see a Luna moth for years. Today one showed up at my office!
Aren’t they amazing? It always reminds me of the way I used to think that the birds I’d known in childhood were the “common” ones, and all others that I met later — with their surprising plumage or calls — must be “exotic.” (They weren’t.) The luna moth’s parts look like a wild art project to me, and I saw my first close-up one last year, outside the post office. Yet I don’t think the moth is actually rare! Just … delightful!
I agree, Beth!
You can’t fool me. That’s not a real moth. That’s a picture from the movie “A Bug’s Life” that Annie and Peter watched incessantly a few years ago.
Wow! How beautiful! I’ve seen them in butterfly gardens but never in their natural habitat.
Sad that “natural habitat” is a screen outside of an office building, but I’ll take it!
