The Magnificent Luna Moth

Luna Moth at Desert Botanical Garden

Luna Moth at Desert Botanical Garden

What a thrill to find two Luna moths today at the Marshall Butterfly Pavillion in Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix AZ. Four of us visited the Garden this morning, and as always discovered new and beautiful and amazing forms of life.

The Luna moths were spectacular. Stunning. Breathtaking.

And what a short life span they have. Adults have vestigial mouthparts and do not feed. Therefore, they are short-lived.

You can find some beautiful photos at this site. And lots of scientific information here. Wikipedia has a combination of information and excellent graphics.
