Last Thursday there was a lunar moth on the screen on one of the windows in the children's room. Everyone who saw it exclaimed at its color, shape, and size. It swayed in the hot breezes that blew all day long. I snapped the photo that accompanies this post. I'm always amazed at the variety of creatures that seem to visit the library grounds--from snakes to moths to turkeys. It's a jungle out there!
Information about lunar moths is readily available online including this site from the University of Florida.
We have information in Moths by Adele Richardson [J 595.78 RIC] and Butterflies and Moths by David J. Carter [595.78 CAR].
