Moth wing scales
This image shows the scales from the wing of a moon moth. It is native to the rain forests of Madagascar. It has spectacular wings and is also known for its long tail. As a result, it is also called the comet moth. The moon moth also has no mouth parts; all feeding is done in its caterpillar stage, which means it only lives ten days. This image was taken using a light microscope and a watercolour filter was added.
