The silence of the Lambs

"Clarice ... "

 

Detail of an Acherontia atropos or Death’s-head Hawkmoth, famous from the scary movie.

 

Today I had the opportunity to photograph this rare moth. Is is so big! To show the skull, I cropped the original heavily so it will fit with the Halloween theme in Macro Mondays.

 

The entire picture is shown below.

Due to shoulder issues I am not able to thank all for viewing/faving/commenting the way I would like to. But I am grateful for every view and/or comment! HMM!
