Weekly Photo Challenge:Down
Friends, last summer on a trip to our seaport, Duluth Minnesota, we were photographing the giant lupines that grow on the bluffs over Lake Superior. Looking down at my feet, we found this Luna moth who begged for attention. These moths are very large with a wingspan of 4-4.5 inches and they only live for one week. I had never seen one in the wild so this made my day. til Tomorrow MJ

I have seen several of these in my life and they always seem to make me catch my breath. Only once have I seen one flying and the way the body hangs straight down with the wings fluttering behind made me realize the origin of fairies.
