Nocturnal novelty: Luna moth

Luna moth I saw this Luna moth flying around the parking lot lamp tonight, and was lucky to get a surprisingly decent photo of it. It is very large, about three inches wide, and has a unique pale olive green color. For more info on this species, see the usually-reliable Wikipedia. I've added this photo, and the recent closeup shot of the Honey bees*, to the Butterflies, spiders, & insects page.

* Apparently, some farmers came by to remove that bee colony for use in orchard or garden pollination.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
