Caption

Luna moth (Actias luna) held in a hand. This moth is a member of the giant silkworm family (Saturniidae). When threatened it will display the two eyespots on its hind wings in order to startle predators. The feathery antennae (lower centre) are extremely sensitive and are used to detect pheromones (sex attractants) emitted by female luna moths at mating time.
