Into the back yard to bring in the laundry, my eyes picked out a brown triangular anomaly in the ground shrubbery.

Cool shot of that unusual moth. Could be a prototype for a stealth fighter. Nice detail and colors. Nice catch.

Cannot disagree with Mike on this one. A very amazing wildlife image and very fortunate timing. Many thanks for sharing.

I really like it. The green makes an otherwise dull moth show up nicely.

I think you folks must have some similar fauna to what is in Indonesia.
I once was greatly impressed by a huge furry animal that looked almost like this one.
A beautiful buff and brown and black moth resting on brilliantly green leaves just like these in your shot.
Glad you showed this!
