Margaret were walking over to our favorite pub about six weeks ago when we saw this little green guy hanging out on a post.
The last time I saw one of these, a luna moth, was in 2008! I wrote about it here, but in short, my sons and I were in Nashville, Indiana, an artist colony with lots of fun shopping. We found this one hanging out on concrete-block sign for the Methodist church.
It’s rare to see a luna moth. According to Wikipedia, “life stages are approximately 10 days as eggs, 6–7 weeks as larvae, 2-3 weeks as pupae, finishing with one week as winged adults appearing in late May or early June.” The date stamp on my recent photo says we spotted this one on June 15.
