Luna moths are beautiful
Have you ever seen a Cecropia (sp) moth? They are even larger. Your luna moth is ok, they only fly at night. If it is a female, she will not fly as much as the male. But come morning, if it is a female, you may find a male luna with her. If it is a male, he will fly away after dark in search of a mate.
