# Laelia obsoleta moth march 14
Beautiful, love the antennae! Reminiscent of a ghost bat from the first image angle.
That is a spectacular angle!
Good question Maria dB. All of the moths are released as soon as they are photographed, usually in the middle of the night. This one was quite healthy last time I saw it. I think I have lost about three of the moths I brought in to be photographed of over a thousand. They are not handled but encouraged to enter the containers by gently making it the easiest way to go. A few play dead. Thanks Mark, he was a lovely little moth
Spectacular find. Definitely male. :) Well done.
Beautiful moth - was it still alive?
