Fruit Piercing Moth

Eudocima materna


came into the house at night either attracted towards light or else trying to hide from bats hunting for insects outside. Outer wings were dark greenish with silvery borders, but the inside wings had beautiful color patterns. Tried to capture that. :)

Very beautiful! I wish you wouldn't write on top of the insect, it distracts from it's beauty and covers details :(
