    An extreme macro photograph of arguably the most colorful of the British Moths. This is the elephant Hawk Moth (deilephila elpenor). It is from the Sphingidae family. Unlike the vast majority of moths, this is highly colored, in pinks and green, mirroring the leaves and flowers of the caterpillars' foodplant, the Rosebay Willowherb. The high magnification shows just how hairy these beautiful insects are. Taken with the Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5X macro lens, 8 shots stacked on Zerene software
