Bella Luna

As we were leaving the house early this evening, I was startled when this Luna Moth (Actias luna) fluttered past me and landed on the driveway in our dooryard. Chuck quickly handed the camera to me and I snapped a few photos. When we returned home several hours later, the Luna was up on the barn door, resting in the spill of light from the old fixture.

That may be the most beautiful moth I've ever seen. You've posted pictures before haven't you?

Hi DMM -
Yes, but just the one that I linked to from last year. I was very fortunate that it was just dusk and that Luna decided to land and rest for a moment!

You're so lucky, the buggers rarely sit long enough for photos!
