Like butterflies, moths can also be very colourful. Camouflage is one reason that moths have such varied shapes and colours. Some moths are poisonous and display this fact using bright contrasting colours. Others are mimics and shape their bodies so that they look like a more dangerous animal, such as a wasp or even the face of a bird or snake.

INDEX: If anyone can identify species I will add it here.
