Luna Moth

I found a beautiful luna moth on the outdoor dog-ramp (built for Ginger when she put her back out) this morning.  Such a gorgeous colour and I love the furry texture of its body and central part of the wings. Click for the full image.
Very fancy antenna.  They have no mouth as they don't eat for the whole of their week-long time as an adult moth.

So special.

    1. Love this moth.
      Sadly found parts of a dead one the other day. Hope to find a live one soon!
      I am assuming it was alive and it flew away?

  2. What a gorgeous creature. I have seen one live only once in my life, on my birthday about 10 years ago (which seemed like a good omen). Your photos are beautiful.
