I once found this guy on a neighbor’s car and stopped to take this pic. The owner came out asking me what the heck I was doing. I pointed to this Luna moth and he was okay with my taking a picture note how big it is! These were large SUV tires! pic.twitter.com/PQLKZXDxFh— Kim M Majczan (@KMajczan) May 22, 2020
