Lovely Luna

As we headed out on Thursday for Josie's graduation, this beauty was waiting for us on the trellis by the front steps.

Lunas are a rare sight and the appearance of this one seemed like a blessing on Josie's big day.

It was perfect when I spotted it in the morning; by evening, one of its trailers was gone.  And by nighttime, so was it. Gone, I hope, to find a mate and make more Lunas.

In this stage of their life, Luna do not feed--they have no mouth. They live about a week and their sole business is reproduction.

But what grace! What beauty!

It's wonderful to see one resting all day in a spot where you can see it.
