Saturday Creature Feature: Mimicry (Maybe Not)


OK, don’t freak out, but there’s a moth out there that looks creepily similar to a hummingbird.

Y’all, this is a MOTH!

 (UPDATE: As a couple of folks have noted, this phenomenon probably is not technically mimicry. But still really cool, huh?!)

Here is another example of mimicry. It’s an imp, masquerading as my son.

This imp’s mimicry was impeccable. I was fooled into giving him apple juice and cookies.

Nature is so wild.
