    A recently emerged male comet moth (Argema mittrei) dries its wings in the forest understorey in the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar. Photo: Nick Garbutt. (I'm thinking yellow toe-shoes, maroon leggings, and a yellow dress with SUCH! A! CAPE! And a headband because antennae are fun. What do you mean normal people cosplay fictional characters, not endangered insects? Where's the fun in that?)

One of the most beautiful moths in the world, the Comet moth or Madagascan Moon Moth, is named after its long red 'tails'. There are a number of moon moths with tails varying in length from mere stubs to long streamers. Biologists now think that those with the longest tails such as this species have evolved more recently than those with shorter tails. The Comet Moth is still fairly common in its native Madagascar.
