An other beautifull creature!
It looks as if the long 'sting' really is the hind legs held tightly together?
Such behavior is well known among some spiders as camuoflage. But I am not aware of its use among moths or butterflies.
Could anybody comment on this?
Hmm, that's possible I suppose.

Hi Cyclops,
But my problem is that the eyes quickly collapse and lose their colour :-(
This time I got some colour :-)

Ah I didn't realise the eyes had collapsed!

Handheld in the garden using sunlight. Took ages to get a decent shot. The slightest breeze and poof, gone.

Re: stitched mosquito

Nice set. I always think that mozzies have eye facets in places that can't surely be of any use optically.
