The Luna Moth has a wingspan of about four and half inches and proudly displays a white body, pinkish legs, huge pale green wings and long tail.
An interesting fact about Luna Moths is that their popularity grew some attention in 1987 when it appeared on a United States first class postage stamp.
In the spring and early summer is the best time to see this species. It can be hard to see it because it flies at night and camouflages itself well in its surroundings during the day. However, it is quite a treat if you are lucky enough to see this species. I have to say that I am still looking to see my first Luna Moth of the season.
