Another incredible insect sighting

One of the guys last week captured an incredible picture of a luna moth hanging out by the big cabin.  Check this out:

Luna moths are one of the largest moth species in North America and can be found as far south as Mexico and as far north as Red Lake, at least!  In Canada, and other northern regions, they only live for about 7 days and will only produce one generation each year.  They are fairly common, but will only be around for the next few days.  A big thank you to Larry for getting this picture!
