Eudia pavoniella – March 5, 2017

Spring is here now, and the Microcosmos is once again opening up for exploration.

My very first moth species photographed this year is a not-so-frequently seen one: Eudia pavoniella (Scopoli, 1763). It is a smaller version of the giant peacock moth (Saturnia pyri), but with the males much more beautifully colored. The following shots confirm that:

This is the second time I’m photographing this species. The first session was a few years ago (link).
