Such a neat moth and great composition! Congratulations Satyen, this moth is our Spotting of the Day:

"What's not to love about a heart-shaped moth? Diduga flavicostata is our Spotting of the Day! This moth in the family Erebidae is found in south and southeast Asia, Japan and Australia. It has a wavy pale yellow border speckled with dark dots. This moth was first described as Pitane flavicostata in 1878 by Dutch entomologist Pieter Cornelius Tobias Snellen. His original drawing for this moth with wings open can be seen here: https://buff.ly/2DkgkGU "
