Max Alexander’s Knitted Madagascan Sunset Moth

Max Alexander of Max’s World continues to blow my mind with these amazingly detailed moths. Her attention to detail is worth noting.

This here is a knitted representation of the chrysiridia rhipheus aka Madagascan Sunset Moth. In real life it is very colourful, yes, but interestingly the iridescent parts of the wings do not have pigment. The colors actually originate from optical interference!

Here are all the moths she has knitted so far.
