Luna Moth



Actias luna, commonly known as the Luna Moth, is a lime-green, Nearctic Saturniid moth in the family Saturniidae, subfamily Saturniinae. It has a wingspan of up to four and a half inches,[making it one of the largest moths in North America. This one is a male. He landed by my porch light even before it was dark last night. After I picked him up he flew up into the biggest shade tree.
