Notes:

What I thought was one mammoth moth I picked up and put on a small plant. Now I see two. They were possibly mating and stuck together. Now they have separated. Who are they in the butterfly kingdom?

    Wow !!! Didn’t know where it came from, but now it’s gone. Thank you. I thank the universe for maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to come in contact and save it from possible predators. We have chickens in the back yard

    These are great photos! What you have seen is a luna moth emerging from its cocoon. This is a gorgeous moth; you were lucky to see this transformation
