What's this?

Burning Mountain, NSW, Australia

A huge variety of insects use camouflage to avoid detection and susequently, being eaten. Those species that are brightly coloured
are usually poisonous or have some other nasty means of defence (or are pretending they do). A moth like this one, therefore, would
almost certainly be a good snack if you were starving in the bush. If you could find it, of course.
