  • Submitted a challenge entry The Eyes Have It
    Granny's Cloak Moth (Speiredonia spectans). In the middle of the night I stumbled into this intriguing creature inside my garden shed. I have never seen eyes on wings that look so realistic both human eyes on the hind wings and cat's eyes on the fore wings. The appearance may deter possible predators. The moth has a wingspan of about 7 cms.  Natural Beauty.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Moth Catcher
    Australian Orb Weaving Spider (E. transmarina) catching a moth in my garden. When the moth flew into the web, the spider detected its vibration, crawled out from the center of the web and rapidly wrapped it in silk, rotating it with its shorter middle legs. then it administered a bite with its deadly venom. The spider then took the moth to the center of the web and consumed it (sometimes it attach it on the web to be eaten later).
