Today’s post features an interesting critter that I don’t see very often, but always a joy to see one … the Luna Moth.
Earlier this week, we saw this little guy as it was perched on a barberry bush next to our garage. This was spotted around noon time, with very harsh light. So, I grabbed a few shots, then waited for the lighting to become better. Late in the afternoon, the moth was still perched in the bush, so I captured some more images, including a lot that I used for “focus-stacking”. Enjoy our little friend!
Coming up … more Florida posts.
