Found shortly after emerging.
Really Love these moths!! Great Find!!
NICE!! How BEAUTIFUL!! And....Although rarely seen due to their very brief (1 week) adult lives, luna moths are considered common. As with all Saturniidae, the adults do not eat or have mouths. They emerge as adults solely to mate, and as such, only live approximately one week. They are more commonly seen at night.
That is a magnificent creature. Wonderful spotting, SooJin.
You're welcome :-)
Thank you Daniele
Hi SooJin, I've edited the location for you by moving the pin to your Ossining coordinates. If you want the spotting to count for Moth Week, you can edit it again and add it to the Moth of the World mission from your mission menu.
