Luna Moths rule in the Catskills!

You’ll see the most wonderful things if you just happen to be in the right place at the right time.

I went to one of our Vacation Rental properties, Acron Ridge, late one afternoon and saw these two Luna Moths hanging out below the light.

Of course I had to get a closer look at these amazing creatures.

Yet another reason for us, like we need another reason, to live in the country.  About ten years ago, we went out to dinner one warm summer evening. We’d forgotten to close one of the windows, the one without a screen.  We came back to find the living room walls papered with a LOT of moths and a variety of other flying things. Not least of which was one, very big, Luna Moth.

That was our first Luna Moth sighting but not our last. But we still get excited when nature crosses our path to remind us just how cool, how beautiful, and how big it really is.

Yesterday’s big is today’s tiny.  Just this afternoon we saw a baby humming bird. So small, at first we thought it was a bee flitting around the flowers. It was smaller than my pinky fingernail, already very colorful, and very determined.

sorry, it was way too fast to get a picture of!
