Oleander Hawk Moth (Female)

Daphnis nerii

Description:

Releasing the female Oleander Hawk Moth - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/170.... I released her at around 10am Dec 31, but still observed how she was doing. It was able to fly at around 5pm, Dec 31 2012. Pic #6 was when she started flapping her wings really fast in preparation for her take off.

Habitat:

Backyard garden.
