Luna moth

This luna moth spent the day on my barn and at night fluttered off. The only other time I saw one was on the very same building, but 20 years previous! Did you know that luna moths don't have a mouth and can't feed? They only live for a week and exist only to mate. Who knew?

Luna Moths are such gorgeous creatures. I saw one only once, sitting on my mailbox, many years ago, but have never forgotten it. The information you provided is interesting - I didn't know that their lives were so brief (and so purposeful)!
