If you have gleaned anything at all about me reading my blog... take away this - I hate above all else, bugs of all kinds. I even detest butterflies, except from a distance.
One morning I saw this... thing... on the back screen door and got the best pic I could without actually going outside where it might come at me. After querying my facebook peeps I learned it's a Luna Moth.
After a quick google search, I found out it has a wingspan of up to 4.5 inches. Not sure how big this one was as I wasn't getting too close. Interestingly, according to google, the adult lives for only about one week and are rarely seen. Frankly I hope I never see another one.
