Fake eyes indeed… don’t get out of line, or you’ll be sorry, hapless observer! What a fine image … the colors of the moths themselves backed by that remarkable bark are magnificent. Great job.
It’s a sort of defensive display to suddenly show their eyespots that are normally hidden under the forewings.Maybe it scares off hungry birds?Or annoying photographers!Haha.Thanks again!
Beautiful Picture, congrats for the feature
Thanks Guy!The feature is much appreciated.:)Cheers,Jim
Looks a bit like the eyes of owls.Great tactic from mother nature.
And of course, a beautiful image!
