African Moon Moth

I think the shape of this moth is spectacular.

Interestingly, the African Moon Moth lives for only a week.

Strangely, it doesn’t have a functioning mouth.

Stored fat is all it needs for its one week of life.

Pest or Work of Art?

The larvae of the African Moon Moth are pests.

It’s never fun to have something eat your plants.

On the other hand, the adult is spectacular.

I’ll stick to capturing photographs of the adult.
