Rostchildia jacobeae. Picture tacked indoor showing the great antennas from this saturnidae, that serve to the male for “smelling” the female even to great distances.

Hi Lucio,
Fantastic hairy monster and great macro. I've read that this kind of night butterflies
could smell a female from a km or more far.

Hi Lucio,
An excellent macro of this Saturnid moth head. Fine composition and excellent details. A very good DOF. Fascinating, thanks.

A perfect POV to demonstrate the wonderful antennae of this moth Lucio, Its thick legs, fat abdomen and impressive wing bases complete a very succesful composition. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
