I had one on my porch last week. Great and rare shot of a Luna moth. The last one I had seen in the wild was in 1986(?) In Indiana

Yes! They are indeed a sight to behold ....very elegant. 2 friends had spotted really great moths earlier just the week before...i was a bit jealous, a Polyphemus Moth and a Luna Moth, seeing this, i calmly walked to my truck and grabbed the camera, honestly didn't think it would still be there when i got back, but that's luck!
See all
