Sunset Moth from Madagascar- the most beautiful insect in the world

Beautiful

MUSE-AHOLIC

Winner : Sunset Moth from  Madagascar

The wings of this insect actually don’t have any pigmentation! The colors that you are seeing are actually refraction of the light from micro-ribbon in the wings. This moth is actually active during the day, while most moths of the same family are active during the night. They are native to Madagascar and South America and their wings change color shifting from blue to gold-green and then to other shade of yellow as you change your viewing angle. As you may have imagined, this butterfly is very wanted by collectors.
