This morning, I want to talk about giant moths. Here’s what happened:
Several weeks ago, a friend of mine found a giant Luna moth while he was mowing lawn.
Amazing, he said.
A Luna’s pale green wings can cover five inches, and their second generation often emerges in late summer.
I have a few other sightings of big moths listed in my daybook of over 30 years.
My favorites are the cecropias. They are giant moths, too. Orange and tan with a six-inch wingspan, they surpass the Lunas in grandeur.
