A Fleeting BeautyPosted: March 10, 2016
An elegant Luna Moth found shelter on the porch door during a rain storm. She is stunning from the tip of her antennae to the end of her tail. Her body is outlined in a fabulous color of purple and has amazing false eyes on her wings.
Her long tail is an auditory deflector to distract bats. In the South the Luna Moth will produce three generations starting in February. Sadly, the gorgeous creature only lives one week, just long enough to reproduce.
The cat is also mesmerized by Luna’s beauty.
