Remarkable Sunset Moth Picture Ideas

One of the most beautiful creatures in the world is a Sunset Moth, also known as an Evening Moth. These moths are mostly white with black spots on their wings and have bright blue eyes that glow brightly when they fly at night. They are known for being attracted to lights at night, which can make them easy prey for predators like bats or owls. One legend says that if you are lucky enough to see one flying up close under moonlight, it will grant you a wish.

Chrysiridia rhipheus, also known as the Madagascan sunset moth or Madagascar diadem, is a species of day-flying moonmoth in the family Uraniidae. It has been reported to be one of only three diurnal species in its subfamily (Artonini), which contains about 30 nocturnal genera.[citation needed] Its wingspan averages 27–30 cm (11–12 inches) and this large size makes it relatively easy to identify among related taxa. The adults do not feed directly on flowers; instead they sip moisture from morning dew using specialised mouthparts while hovering like a hummingbird.

The adults hawk for insects and sip nectar from flowers, but do not feed on water (unlike many other members of their family). They are reported to be able to survive without drinking fluids directly by getting the necessary moisture from dew or sap.[citation needed] Adults may live up to two months in captivity; they die within one day if kept without food. The larvae produce extremely toxic chemicals that make them unpalatable even to birds such as kingfishers which specialise in eating poisonous prey.[citation needed] Although all Artonini species studied so far have these poisons, those of some are more potent than others.
