Luna moth

This time of year we often see the "Luna moths". Kindof a sweet-but-said bug....

Here's what Wikipedia says about them:

Although rarely seen due to their very brief (1 week) adult lives, Luna moths are considered common. As with all Saturniidae, the adults do not eat or have mouths. They emerge as adults solely to mate, and as such, only live approximately one week. They are more commonly seen at night.
