This large butterfly took refuge on the window screen yesterday and stayed there most of the day. I am guessing it is some type of butterfly. I haven't seen one like this before ~ very large (about 5" long) ~ delicate looking in spite of its size. Could it be in the moth family? It really is fun seeing things for the first time and what a blessing to be able to photograph them. I am going to do some research and find out what it is.

Very beautiful - I would also like to know what it is I have not seen one like it either. I would almost guess moth over butterfly by the shape of the wings.

Hi Audrey - I have discovered that it is a Luna Moth.
