Moth

Description:

It was heavily raining in my native village. After waiting for so much time, there were no signs of reduction in rain. I decided to go out with umbrella. As camera was getting wet, i had toughest time to photograph.. Saw this beautiful small fellow. He kept hiding and i followed. Finally i got two pictures before he got invisible to me. But only one shot came clear :)
