© Copyright 2009 FarmgirlFare.com, the fly by night foodie farm blog where seeing a Luna moth on the farm always feels as if we've been given a gift. For those of you who have been wondering about my camera, these pictures—along with all of the photos I've posted on Farmgirl Fare and In My Kitchen Garden during the past two and a half years—were taken with the little point and shoot Canon PowerShot A630 that is almost always strapped around my neck.

  7. I love luna's. They are so pretty. They like moon flowers along with that other kind of moth with the long stinger nose. Sorry don't know it's name.

    Great picture.

  9. Lovely! We saw these beauties in the summer in Wisconsin while I was growing up. Sadly, my parents haven't seen them around for many years now. I wish I knew why.
