.....and does it have eyes? I wonder if it could see through all that fur/hair? Probably relies on those massive antennae rather than visual sight, and is it any wonder moths are rarely caught in spider webs. I guess with all those loose bristles a web just couldn't grab hold. Nice.

Beautiful photos, Andreas, and a gorgeous moth. Excellent clarity. Gives me something to aspire to :-)
