All green moth with two eyes on the forewings and two on the underwings. The abdomen is all white except a little yellow patch near the head. Legs are a dark red, and feet are tan. Males have large antenna, and females are larger in size compared to males.
Attracted by lights.
This male was very calm and let me handle him with ease. This is the 4th and final 'big' moth I found in the Smoky Mountains.
Check how a luna moth emerges from its pupa :D
Thank you guys (:
Great catch Conor!
Would love to see this!
