ID: Painted hand maiden moth
A frame of the mating pair of Painted hand maiden moths, that seemed to be perched on the common floss flower(Chromolaena odorata). While others seemed to be filling up on the moisture from the wet soil, that was left behind by the receding tide, these seemed busy copulating, higher off the ground, almost simultaneously basking onto the sun's rays.
