|The Eyed Hawk-Moth (Smerinthus ocellata) is a European moth of the family Sphingidae.|
The Eyed Hawk-Moth, so called from a large and beautiful spot in each of the hind wings that somewhat resembles an eye. The fore wings are brown, with a very beautiful reddish bloom over them, and clouded with olive-brown. The hind wings are of a delicate rosy red at the base, and a pale brown towards the margin; and each has a large and beautiful eye-like spot, grey in the centre, surrounded with blue, and the blue surrounded by a black ring.

Superb, I used to rear Hawk moths from egg and caterpillars (I lived near an orchard and they habitated apple and willow tree's) The caterpillars are also amazing...huge green things with a spike at one end!!!
(if you get one, you can make it open it's wings by scratching the thorax/abdomen with a
fine pencil point...but be gentle!!!
excelent macro photo

Kadr rzeczywi¶cie można traktować jak zagadkę, ale jest ciekawy. Bardzo dobota dobra, prawie zegarmistrzowska i w podobny sposób ujawnia detale owada. Doceni to każdy, kto wie czym jest makro.
