Beautiful! I wish I can see one of these luna moths one day, but for this I need to be in US :-)

Thanks, Hema, you too! I've been having pretty good luck with Lunas and other moths. Knock on wood. Still have a few I haven't had a chance to post. During Moth Week, I noticed that, if you keep your eye out for them, moths are everywhere ... even if you don't get much of a chance for field trips.
