it is like a pinprick to my heart to see these pictures. we had a lunar moth park itself on our porch for the duration of its life. i took it as great sign of luck. beautiful creatures. thanks for sharing.
Laura, it was a tragic. Poor little creature. I feel lucky to have found it, though.
How beautiful. How sad. Nature is so often this way.
Jean, so true. Thank you for stopping in.
:( must be very impressive to see a buterfly that big suffering and dying... so beautiful and so ephemeral. It's a male for sure and I think it's a Saturnidae... i think.
Hi Maldito! so glad you stopped in with more information! I tried to identify it. There are so many moths in that family, that I can't be sure. it was at least six inches and had beautiful, wide, fern-like antannae, the "eyes" were black and small.
