Here’s an incredibly detailed look at a spectacular Tiger Moth, Bertholdia flavidorsata. The colors on this guy are absolutely stunning. Not to mention its smoldering eyes which seem to pierce straight through the computer screen and into my soul. That was weird to write. But it was still true.
I love the false set of yellow eyes on its back which it uses to deter predators. With so many ‘eyes’ looking at you, you might not be so tempted to commit murder by eating another creature. Because obviously that’s what a predator would be thinking about. Obviously.
