Exquisitely patterned. I cannot describe the shades and hues. Beyond me...still marvelling.
It came and sat on me...I carefully encouraged it to sit on my hand and the let it fly away. I saw these moths at least once every evening...at different spots...wall, floor, shrubs...at the resort I stayed in at Village Borong. Sikkim. Pretty sparsely populated unspoilt hilly area.
