UPDATE 5-13-14

Yesterday, I was updating my mom’s calendar for the remainder of the month.Β  Ironically, as I took a closer look at the featured design, I noticed the month of May features this butterfly/moth. I made a mental note to look it up on “Dr. Google”!Β  πŸ˜€

For lack of knowing where to begin — I typed in long tail moth or butterfly.

Drum roll …. It is a Lunar Moth!!

Tidbit of info:

Luna Moths are members of the Saturniidae family, also known as the “Giant Silkworm Moths.”

Luna Moths are huge moths, with a wingspan of four and a half inches. They have a white body, pinkish legs, and huge pale green wings. The hindwings have eyespots and long tails.

They fly, only at night, in Spring and early Summer.

The female Luna Moth lays eggs on the bottom of Black Walnut leaves. She lays about 200 eggs in small groups.

You can tell a male from a female, because males have larger, bushier antennae.

      I’m thinking, I took the photo because I had not seen anything that large — glad it was on the ground dormant and not flying about! YIKES — I’d be running too!! πŸ˜€
