I saw this interesting specimen in our barn this last weekend. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.
The Luna Moth is one of the largest moths in North America. It was about 4 inches wide. Adults like this live only 7 days and they do not eat. Their sole purpose is to mate. (That explains how it stayed in the same place for about 36 hours in our barn.)
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.
