To the naked eye, this caterpillar is very much a part of the plant instead of a hungry larval feeding on the young leaves. But under the macro lens, every single detail come to life in glorious beauty.
Here is my other vote for most beautiful bee (I know its not a beetle!!) The cuckoo bee. Shiny, metallic blue or green, with a detailed surface all over their body. They usually don’t sting, and are a type of parasitic wasp. Their larvae are ectoparasites (external parasites) of other bee and wasp larvae. The name “cuckoo wasp” comes from the fact that this insect, like the cuckoo bird, lays her eggs in the nest of an unsuspecting host.
One of the most beautiful moths in the world, the Comet moth or Madagascan Moon Moth, is named after its long red 'tails'. There are a number of moon moths with tails varying in length from mere stubs to long streamers. Biologists now think that those with the longest tails such as this species have evolved more recently than those with shorter tails. The Comet Moth is still fairly common in its native Madagascar.
