i beleive they are called a lunar/luna (something like that) moth. see them all the time here around the plant with all the outside lights.

It is a Luna moth

BTW I googled "big green moth" to figure it out.

I think it means you're about to be visited by the Mothman.

Thanks guys. I wonder why the tail part is different. Maybe something to do with age or sex. [shrug]

That mothman thing looks like a good test target for my Defender.

Get rid of it, and do so right away!

That's the kind of moth you get when it puts the lotion on the skin.

Very nice picture and an attractive little bugger.

It was very lethargic when I caught it, and I thought it was going to die, but when the sun started going down it got real active. I let it go, and it took off like crazy.
