Crow’s Nest: Luna moth
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager
Yesterday a luna moth (Actias luna) appeared at our house on the preserve. Above, an abstract view. Below, on the woodpile. It’s always wonderful to see these; I usually come across just one a year, though they likely raise two generations a year in our climate. Adults don’t live long, just a few days, and they are more active at night.
