Here's Lookin' at You


 What gazing eyes are these?








It's the luna moth.  This is the second one that we've had on our back deck this summer.  I guess it's a good year for moths.

The colours and textures are simply gorgeous on this large (4.5 " wingspan) moth.

  2. Those marks are supposed to scare predators - well, they certainly scare me, especially when I read how big these fellows are.

  3. Very cool! I had no idea what the photo was of when I saw the first photo.
