TRAVEL THEME: ANIMALS

Sometime in late spring in Maine, while my husband and children were desperately trying to pitch a tent, I wandered about  (very helpful of me! 😉  )  looking for neat things to photograph. I chanced upon a funny looking leaf which turned out to be not a leaf when I got to it up-close.

It did look like a new spring growth, except that there were  little legs under it –


It had a little white furry body that did not even flinch when the nozzle of the camera got closer.

The “leaf” turned out to be wings! I called my children so that they too could see this neat little butterfly-like bug.

It turned out to be a Luna Moth. Isn’t it pretty?
