    Oops I better change my profile pic. I went out to get my cart out and here is this beautiful light green moth. He/She is not quite as big as the last one but is still unusual. It was windy and had a hard time getting his spots on his lower wings.

    I looked later and it was gone- Just wanted to share-Carla

    She/he is beautiful. It is amazing that you are able to get such good shots of them.

    You should start a collection and of photos of your moths (you probably already did).

    Thanks for sharing.

    Carla. I tried to look it up on the net, but the computer gives out after a couple clicks.

    If you get a few more pictures, you can do an exhibit at your next art show. A good title for this special occasion would be Moth-ers Day.

    What a beautiful moth. It's a Luna moth. I raised a bunch of them when I was a child. I fed the caterpillars leaves off a black walnut tree. I used to collect butterflies and moths.

    That's the moth in the Lunesta commercial.

    The other night my son and I found a large yellow Imperial moth. We took him out on a back road and let him out. We were afraid that he'd beat himself up flopping around on the pavement.
