Loony Luna


Luna Moth

The ever mysterious Luna Moth, pictured here on the porch ceiling of Serendipity. (Serendipity is the name of the house I live in here on Cumberland.)

FACT: Luna moths are one of the largest moths in existence, with a wingspan up to 4.5 inches.

FACT: Adult luna moths don't eat, in fact they don't even have a mouth. They only live for about a week, with the only purpose being to mate. 

FACT: This picture contains my two favorite colors, lime green and turquoise, together in beautiful harmony. :)
