Artist's Description

The Atlas Moth has the largest wing surface area of all moths.
It is so named because its wing patterns resemble maps. The Atlas Moth’s wings have triangular transparent “windows” whose purpose we don’t know. The wing tips are hooked and some say resemble a snake’s head complete with eye, to scare off predators.

Nikon D80 – Sigma 105 DG Macro lens at f/4
