The Illusive Luna Moth



Have you ever heard of a Luna moth? Have you seen the Lunesta sleep aid commercial and noticed the large green moth? This is a Luna moth and this is what I found on the trunk of our pecan tree one day. Apparently spotting one doesn't happen too often. Once they transform from caterpillar to moth they die within a week. Here's a picture of one. Beautiful huh??
