As a moth gnaws a garment, so doth envy consume a man.
--St. John Chrysostom (347-407) Archbishop of Constantinople
The spectacular luna moth is said to be fairly common, but seldom seen. These beautiful and distinctive moths fly only at night in late spring and early summer, with their huge, green wings (3-4.5 inch spread). Male and female luna moths are nearly identical, with the males having larger, bushier antennae. Once they reach adulthood, they never eat -- they have no mouths! They live only a week, with their sole purpose to find a mate.
