moth things

bugs deserve friends too !

a black witch moth (ascalapha odorata) that my sister found at the beach a year ago.

im no expert but due to the male and female patterns on its wings, i think this one is actually intersex!


hemeroblemma dolosima this moth actually looks brown until the right lighting hits! this is because nanostructures in its scales reflect blue light and give it this metallic purple/blue appearance
