Small Emperor Moth Brooch Pin
Often mistaken for butterflies, these day-flying moths are pretty spectacular for their size and colors. Females are bigger than males and can have a wingspan of four inches with transparent eyespots, which presumably serve as a protective function in frightening predators.
