A green something

Spotted this green flying moth thing sitting on a post up on our land.  
Anyone ever seen anything like it or know what it is?
It was quite big - about three inches across.
It stayed there long enough for me to get a step ladder,
climb up and take pictures so I was able to get up nice and close.
It must have stayed there over an hour.

A happy day to you.


  1. I don't know what they are called either. But they sure are pretty.

  2. It is called a Luna Moth.They are quite a lovely sight.No I don't have them where I live but have seen other posts about them and also seen them in a butterfly field guide.

  3. Oh its a BEAUTIFUL Luna Moth!!!! Awesome!!

  4. Wow, tbat is interesting. I have never seen something like that before.

  5. I have never seen anything like it before. It is striking.

  6. Never have seen anything like it but those are fabulous captures!

  7. OH GOOD GRIEF!!! She's climbing again!!!!! Eeeeeek!!!!

    But you did it carefully this time... Used a step ladder! GOOD!!!!!

    Lovely, whatever it is. Bet the lady at the "Woods And Water Ways" would know. :-)

    Think you've told of the *dinner bell* before but...... Would you tell us all again... About everything in this pic... Other than the butterfly, that is? :-)

  8. I love Luna moths. They're so wondrous! Lucky you to have a visit from one.

  9. I have no idea what breed of moth - what a beauty though.

  10. We have many lunar moths here in PA.
