I spotted this moth sleeping during the day while hiking on a huge, partially forested hill behind the town of Salento. It's not very wild at all but had enough vegetation and forest cover that I consistently spotted cool things the few times I hiked there. I used a very wide aperture (f/2.8) because it was dark in the forest and I didn't want to raise the ISO too much, so it was tough to get the entire moth in focus because it was distinctly ridged. Both photos together give a clear image, if I only knew how to layer them in Photoshop!
