Luna Moth, Louisville KY, Apr 2009

On April 18, I was sitting on my coach and happened to look out the sliding glass door. I did a double take when I saw this bright green thing at the top of the screen. I got up to take a look and found this Luna moth. This was mid-afternoon when I found it, I believe it was recently emerged and still drying its wings. I tired to capture it, but when I saw it was going to beat itself to death in the jar I let it go. It flitted around a little and then settled on the down spout. It stayed here for a few more hours, by evening it was gone.
