Luna Moth


luna moth

Actias luna Spotted May 16 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

This green moth was just resting at a gas station in Oak Ridge, completely still.

They eat as caterpillars, but their adult life is just for sex and involves no food. Also, their long tails may help them confuse bats. For more details, check out the video below.

Some people go out to exotic destinations to see wildlife. But seemingly boring places may be hiding wonders if you just look for them.
