Oleander Hawk Moth (Daphnis nerii) by Steve Covey: This female was bred in captivity - but from ova collected in the wild under license from Rhodes, Greece. She has a 90mm [nearly 4"] wing span!! The caterpillars feed on oleander leaves and are immune to their toxicity. Adult prefer to feed on the fragrant blossoms of jasmine, honey suckle and petunia. #Oleander_Hawk_Moth #Steve_Covey #Insects
