Two Luna Moths


I’m having a terrible time doing any sewing or quilting. There’s just too much to do out in the vegetable garden and the flower gardens. So, bear with me if your primary interest is textiles. Remember, my habitat is my inspiration.

A few mornings ago I was out in the garden picking snow peas, and eating a few while I picked, when I saw some white fuzzy stuff on the tomatoes. Thinking it was some horrid insect or other such critter, I rushed over to pluck it from the plant. Look what I discovered.

I usually see about one a year in the evening fluttering against a screen. This is the first time I’ve seen two lives ones in the daylight. My friend Nancy informs me the one on the left is a male and the other a female. She says the males have bigger feather antennas. When I find something like this, I feel like I’ve hit a jackpot!

    Wow! You lucky thing, you! I’ve only seen a luna moth very few times in my life, but you are very blessed to see one every year, and now a pair. Ummmm…snow peas.
