orlithdm2 Luna moth
Luna moth commented on by orlithdm2 Alabama, USA12 months ago

I have seen them lose their coloring later in life so this may be an old moth. If you look up in the corner of its wing you will see a very faint tinting sugesting that in its prime it was a very beautiful bright green in colo. This stage is just as beautiful but not as comonly photographed, for they are not found until after death most of the time and reclaimed by nature.
