Luna Moth

Luna Moth


Luna Moth

This guy is perched on a low plant in our front yard – it looks like his right wing is damaged. I thought about moving him to a tree branch, but I’d worry that he might make a nice snack for a bird or bat. I guess I’ll assume he knows what’s best and I’ll keep the cat indoors for the night.

Isn’t he gorgeous? Lunas are out mostly at night, so it’s unusual to get a good look at one.

I can’t decide whether Flickr’s new “beta” autotagging feature is comical or just lame. It tagged that first photo as both “plant” and “animal.” It amazes me that I’ve had plantimals growing in the back yard and didn’t even know it!

Ruffed grouse near Beech Gap, Blue Ridge Parkway

This is the best of four out-of-focus photos I got of a ruffed grouse that was standing in the middle of the northbound lane of the Blue Ridge Parkway this afternoon. He strolled into the underbrush as I was readying my camera and jumped up on a tree stump to pose for a photo, but I wasn’t quick enough to get a good shot.
