At first it didn't look real

 
This is a luna moth (I had to look it up) sitting on the handle of a broom by the front door.  The green is very delicate lime tone and its wingspan is at least 3 inches.  The moth must have emerged this morning.  I had heard of them being large, lovely creatures but had never seen one in person.  What a special treat.
