Luna Moth - Actias luna - male

Luna Moth - Actias luna - Male
Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
April 15, 2017
This Luna moth was attracted to a porch light. Nice color - sometimes they are a very pale color. I believe this is a male because of the antennae. I have never seen one of these this early and the Bugguide data shows this is the earliest reported for Kentucky. We have had a number of very warm days this late winter/early spring....
