I noticed the bright spot of color from my office window this morning.
It's always breath taking to see a Luna Moth (Actias luna) from the Saturniidae family. Especially up close. This is only the third I've seen in my lifetime. And the first time I've had a decent camera in hand.
Although common, they only live one week in this phase. They emerge just to mate, and don't eat or even have a mouth. As an artist I would never have thought to combine plum with lime, but it works very well. Isn't the striping on this male's eyespot and his brushy antennae just exquisite?
