We're not into catching things except for a quick photo then release.

also, i have seen 6 sphinx or hawk moths in total and i have caught 4 of them. i’ve also caught a Tropical Swallowtail Moth, and have gotten up close with some Oleander Hawk Moth caterpillars, pupas and an adult at my school. also, i’m in Calabarzon, so you think you got any nice moths for me, ppl?

well, i’m in the main island, in Luzon in the philippines, so i think this is probably Hippotion from Southeast Asia.

Welcome.
Can we help with location on the map? (I'm sure you're not in the Atlantic ocean near Cameroon)
