The Saddest Moth Fact You’ll Learn Today

We peeped the antennae of these spectacular little creatures at the edge of our window today and then spent the next hour watching and photographing them.  We had no idea what kind of moths they were at first.

The green one, who is actually about 4-5 inches wide (wider than Joseph’s hand!) is a Luna moth.  We think the one on the right is an Agreeable Tiger Moth. 

Sadly, Luna moths don’t have mouths because they NEVER eat.  They only live long enough to mate.
