You have a Luna Moth there. They were once the big green squishy caterpillars you've probably seen in spring and early summer. :)
Wonderful capture! So lucky to have seen one just sitting there!

Wow - talk about luck! you were very lucky. what an amazing moth. you have caught the details in the moth very well especially given the white wall and sunshine.
What a beautiful moth. I didn't know there are such "exotic" moths in New Jersey. A great POV, sharp details, lovely colors.
I find the brightness of the wall a bit distracting from that wonderful specimen, so I tried a workshop to tone that down a bit.
TFS. : )

Beautiful butterfly Laurita!
It looks like from aother planet :)
Great green colors an good composition.
Very well done.
Thanks for sharing.
My best regards,
Wow! What an unbelievable moth. I work with a guy who records all the moths he sees at work on an Excel spreadsheet (whatever turns you on!) Last year he recorded over 250! Mind you, we work in a factory in the middle of woods and fields. I will definitely show him this one, it will make his day!
there are many unique and special capture you got here.
This moth is so special and i have never seen it before.
Nice colours and excellent sharpness. the antenna looks so different and exciting.
well presented shot.
