photographing and learning about wildlife
Large insect that looks like Darth Vader. Yellow wings trimmed in brown, with black marks.
I spotted many of these flying around (they look like tiny birds in flight) but this one was found lying still near the door of the dining hall of the Neora Valley Jungle Camp. It was alive when I spotted it.
These make a REALLY loud noise. I have a video. Two kids spotted me taking the photo, when I walked out after my meal I found they had battered the poor thing to death. The population did not take a big hit I know but felt saddened, nonetheless. Please also see: https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/14... All Thanks to Mark Ridgway for the ID.
