Look! Pretty!

Cicindela has been playing with scanners and saturniid moths, to great result:

The original file must be huge!   Worth noting that Cicindela is taking a lead from Joseph Scheer, who first perfected the technique.

    I’ve seen three of those moths in person, Polyphemus, Luna, and what I think is the Imperial moth. The yellow IO moth is another one I might have seen too.

    Looking at the original picture on my screen they all seem life sized! Your suggestion of making posters is a great one because I’d certainly buy one.

    How does this scanner work? All scanners I know would smash these things. 😀

    I left the lid open and placed a black box over the moth as I scanned it
