Luna Moth - a portrait

Image shows a luna moth which are increasingly rare. They are quiet large and have a short live span. So short that - according to some sources - they don't even have mouths. We are lucky enough to have some of these show up around our house in the summer. This specific moth was resting on our fence which made it possible for me to take this and other images.
