Luna Moth - Actias luna - female

Luna Moth - Actias luna - Female
Greenwood County, South Carolina, USA
May 5, 2006
Size: 12cm wingspan
Attracted to a covered lighted porch on a rainy night. Very docile and allowed me to move it on a stick to a better location for photographing. Only the second I've ever seen, and the first I could photograph. Gives us a data record for South Carolina.
