Actias luna - male

Actias luna - Male
Sanbornville, New Hampshire, USA
May 6, 2015
First one emerged on April 26 - too early. Second one (the one in the photo) emerged May 6 - still a little too early. Third one emerged May 7. All males so far, and quite a bit smaller than wild individuals. Hopefully the rest wait another week or so to emerge.

Edit: None of the other five emerged.
