He was there from 8am all the way until 8pm when I left. I also ended up seeing him the yesterday too! This time he was resting on something that I had to paint, so I had to disturb the guy.
After doing research today. It is a luna moth. People are claiming it is endangered. I'm not sure if it is, but they say pesticides are making it that way. Anyways very cool looking.
This particular Luna Moth was found in Palos Heights, Illinois.
Wow awesome pictures.. haven't seen these at all
It almost appears as if it is glowing neon green. Maybe just the camera but still pretty cool
That's pretty. In Wales a few years back I saw a humming bird moth - the only time ever - looking and behaving exactly like a humming bird !
It never sat still for a photo unfortunately
It was off of my phone. Not the best quality, but not terrible. It really caught my eye. The funny thing was the door is right next to it, like a foot away. I walked through that door about 30 times that day. I made sure I closed the door softly, because the first time I slammed it and his wings caught a lot of the air and almost ripped him off.
My camera was literally 3-4 inches from him.
Like I said I saw him again yesterday when I was painting I had to get him off. I had this little scraper so I tried to nudge him with hit. He didn't move, so I did it again. This time he fell to the ground, then he sat still for a split second. It seemed like this is the grace period when you have no idea what happens when you wake up. He then started flapping his wings and started flying right at me. I had no idea if he could actually hurt me, but I figured not. He certainly did make me jump though. He ran into my shorts and then flew under my legs and then went off into the woods.
I think it's beautiful and you must be very much in touch with nature. Lot's of people wouldn't even have noticed it and there are others who would have just swatted it. Thank you for the lovely pics.
