Sometimes the caterpillars are even more astounding than the adult moth...and this can be especially true for moths (but don't tell Mr. Moth that....or he will start arguing with me again).
But sometimes they are equally spectacular, and the case in point is the Chinese Moon moth, or Lunar moth, a gorgeous, huge, aqua blue and pink moth. But just look at this monster...it was easily 3" long, when found end October by Adam and I in the hills of SAi Kung.
Just look at his little feet! peekabooooo
Its like he was out for Halloween, wearing a crazy jester's outfit.
