  • Female Luna Moth - Actias luna. Yesterday morning I discovered this female Luna Moth inside the back door of my house. She had emerged from the cocoon she had built on the door jamb between the inside and outside doors. I invited her into my photo studio for a photo shoot where she was content to warm and dry her wings under the lights. When she began fluttering her wings I knew she was getting ready to fly so I released her into my garden. She flew across the garden and landed in a nearby shrub. When Mary and I went to take one last look and photo we discovered a male Polyphemus moth -Antheraea polyphemus on a branch just a few feet away. When we tried to pull the branches aside so we could get a better photo it flew out of the shrub and across the garden where a Mississippi Kite swooped down and narrowly missed having it for it's dinner! It was a pretty exciting few seconds!
