    they only fly at night. there used to be vast flocks of them but pollution kind of killed them off and they are on the endangered species list now.

    well not in the way pollution kills others. Luna Moths like to feed on the leaves of certain trees but especially white birch. their lime green wings would blend into the colors of the birch trees during the daytime (when they sleep) and you had to bump into the tree to realize it had a living coat of moths sleeping and drying their wings in the sunlight. then in the early 1900s the smog and soot from the coal furnaces caused the tree barks to darken (they got sooty) and the moths appeared like big white spots on a black leopard. their predators were able to see them now that the contrast improved and their breeding populations were picked off the trees for bird food. Central Park used to have great swarms of Luna Moths that would fly eerily silently against the moonlit sky at night, and then the soot caused them to be killed off before the next generations could be bred. Now that we've vastly improved the air quality and banned dirty burning fuel sources we're trying to re-introduce the Luna moth species, although its not been as successful as with some others (like the peregrine falcons).
