I want to write a fantasy world where the forests and mountains and rivers are all on the back of a giant moth like this. The slow flap of its wings through space creates the tides and day/night. The seasons are it flying towards and away from the sun, with the summer being a time of ill omen as the people fear it will fly into the sun and kill them all.

Sounds like an interesting world..I wonder what kind of lifeforms would wander around the forests of these lands (:

Wow, at first I thought this was a satellite photo of a moth-shaped forest (or satellite photo of a forest that had been doctored to look like a moth), but no.... its a moth. That's crazy

The detail in this is spectacular and the colours make it look even more organic (stone and woodland forest)... but it's a moth, so still creeps me out :/

Congrats on the DD

Is it just me or does it look like there is a goddess being worshipped by two persons on the wings?

Cool. I like moths or butterflies with a intricate pattern on their wings.

A truly gorgeous specimen! It amazes me just how fuzzy moths are when seen in close-up like this: I tend to think of moths and butterflies as having sort of smooth, glossy wings, but the scales on these wings look almost like fur or feathers! (I am also drawn to this shot because I adore this shade of mossy green! :D )

My first thought noticing the thumbnail was that this was a moth sculpture made out of bark and moss o.O Then I realized it was an actual moth. That's some epic camouflage right there.

Definitely an excellent capture :)
