The other day, I pulled the car into the driveway and my son noticed this guy (or girl) hanging out on the side of the garage door.
Apparently, my garage is very attractive to luna moths because this because this is the second year in a row this fancy looking bug has dropped in for a week long visit. He drops in, hangs out in exactly the same spot for DAYS, and then suddenly, he's gone.
Lest you think a Luna Moth is just like a regular moth, only green, let me show you another picture:
Luna moth... and my hand. Check out the size. He's like a small mammal, for God's sake... and you can see, he was not fazed in the least to have my hand right next to him while he rested there on the door frame. I have a few questions regarding Mr. (or Ms.) Luna Moth:
What the heck is it doing?
Where did it come from, and how in the hell can it find its way back to the exact same spot two years in a row? I'm not even kidding when I say it's on the same side of the garage door it was on last year.
Is there some symbolism going on here? Is there some cosmic change in the works or is it.... jus springtime again. If you're bored, google Luna Moths. There's a whole lost of info out there. Weird.
Who is this little guy? Is this the opposite sex counterpart to Mr. or Ms. Luna moth? It was hanging out patiently quite nearby.
Maybe this is a stupid question, but are Luna Moths the marketing symbol for Lunesta?
I think I need to get out more. Or maybe I just need more sleep.
