Congratulations Atul, your Wasp Moths are features in our special #ValentinesDay Spotting f the Day:

"Love is literally in the air for this pair of Wasp Moths (Euchromia polymena) in our #ValentinesDay Spotting of the Day! For moths in the subfamily Arctiinae, courtship involves a complex interplay of female call and male response, using ultrasound, or pheromones, or both. Within this subfamily moths in the subtribe Euchromiina practice pharmacophagy as adults - feeding on plants to obtain chemicals rather than nutrients. Through pharmacophagy these moths acquire the chemical constituents of pheromones and nuptial gifts that will ultimately improve mating success".

Atul, it's extra-ordinary: the situation, direction of the light, muted colour of the flower all contrast with your subject. Just great.
