Luna moth

We have taken to celebrating Friday evenings casually this summer with a friend or two, and a small, evening bonfire in our stone fire pit. It is a wonderful way to wind down the week and welcome the weekend. The other night, we were blessed with a visit from this stunning Luna Moth! This is a rare occurrence, as Luna Moths live for only about a week’s time and are generally active only at night. This is only the third time in my life that I have seen one. I managed to quickly capture an image using the camera in my cell phone before he continued on his way. Unfortunately, the resulting image file left a bit to be desired for clarity due to low (fire) light and a tiny lens. But some quick Photoshop tweaks turned my weak photo into a small photo-art memento that I love!
