[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Luna Moths while common in some parts of my country are very rare for me to see here in the mountains of NY State. This has been the only one to visit me here this summer. It was glowing like a jewel, perched on the lower branches of a Hemlock tree, nearby where I use lights to attract moths. A truly amazing creature, and so very large, they live but 2 weeks as adults. Their sole purpose is to find a mate and reproduce. Their beauty is unparalleled.

Listen to what is in my book for :animal speak: they have this moth listed! It makes me smile the message; (protection and success) "Greater protection exists in all endeavors. This is a time of abundance and success. Face inhibitions" :0) LOL again WELL DONE!!
