Amazing, awesome, wonder-filled macro photos of some of the beauties living in Belize. There’s much more to see at BBC Earth.

    What struck me about the Walker moth is the feathery bits over the wings -- all over our property, all year round, but especially in Spring and Summer, there are tiny feathers that look exactly like that hanging from trees, shrubs, flowers, in the grass, it’s exceptional camouflage.

    That Lobster moth caterpillar is awesome!

    The Walker’s moth brings an association of a soul of an owl.

    The saddleback caterpillar has a high-visibility vest.

    The Taeniopoda grasshopper looks like a Robt Wars house robot.

    The male jumping spider seems to be watching.

    The lobster moth caterpillar is the sort of creature that would look slightly over the top if it were fictional.

    The legs on the female jumping spider! They’re see-through!
    And the mantis face, they’re so CUTE.
