That is correct, there is local variation within populations.

Hey Kel, I think you meant "bug." ;) This is a great series by the way. You always find the coolest things.

Beautiful find Dr. I can only hope one day I will be able to explore the moth diversity in this region too. :)

Interesting that you fount this in Zimbabwe. I thought they were strictly North American.

I've seen these all the time and I can never find a reference to what they are. Mighty puzzling.

Thanks Megan, I use a Venus 60mm f/2.8. It's a fun little lens. Completely manual, which adds a new challenge.

Nice find, it appears that this female was finishing up drying her new wings.

Hi DrNamgyalT.Sherpa, I was wondering what you're advice was trying to say? I have had success using a flash at night with my moth photography. Sadly, this example is the rare example when my flash's batteries had died.
