Giant Peacock Moth

Saturnia pyri


Giant Peacock Moth male and female mating. They were as big as my hand palm. Great Peacock Moth, Giant Emperor Moth or Viennese Emperor.


Looking at some old pictures to send to a friend, I found those ones back :) I was really impressed to, first, see a couple of Giant Peacock Moths, and second, right in the middle of the afternoon! I wish I had a better camera, back in the days. You can see more of my photography @ Or follow me on Facebook :) . Take care!
