Luna Moth in April in Oakland, NJ - Actias luna - male

Luna Moth in April in Oakland, NJ - Actias luna - Male
Oakland, Passaic County, New Jersey, USA
April 25, 2017
Added this individual as the first April occurrence of the species in NJ on BugGuide. Camera phone photo, sorry if the resolution is poor. Relatively small for a Luna, found on the side of a supermarket wall. As it was near to the ground by the shopping cart station, I relocated it to some nearby woods in Wayne (about a mile away) to prevent anyone from smooshing it!
