detailsAn extreme closeup of the upper eye spot on a luna moth's wing. These large moths live in their adult form for only a few days. When they emerge from their cocoon they "pump up" their wings and start searching for a mate. I had access to a few moths this spring thanks to an entomologist, and after they were photographed they were released to pursue their destinies... Pentax Mz-S, Kiron 105mm f2.8 macro, extension tubes, flash, Velvia.

Incredible detail, both in your photo and in the creator's design! Great shot - I love this kind of thing - macro at it's finest!

Thanks for the comments - for those who are interested in seeing the whole moth, here's a documentary shot of the subject that this detail came from (paste into your browser):

Very interesting.

wow! I had one land on my gum tree just once but I didn't get a close up nearly this good. Do you have any of the whole moth? I'd love to see it.

sorry, didn't read comments first....

Wow! Now that is close up. Obviously a challenge to get sufficent DOF throughout at this magnification. Still a terrific macro. Well done Mark.

Extreme closeup for sure! Great abstract!

Very interesting image. I had no idea what it was until I read the description.

What a blow-up to retain such fine detail! Mark, it gives me the feeling that they are always "watching us"! Very Cool!

That is the single coolest insect shot I have ever seen.
