    Default The vibrant bowtie-d gentleman

    ID: ID help appreciated

    One of the most beautiful moth that visited my home, this beauty surprisingly cooperative and friendly and seemed comfortable posing for the photographs. While taking some close up shots of this beauty, the white scales/feathers almost resembled like an amazing and slightly oversized bowtie. The angle with which it seemed to be posing brought in some form of attitude to the moths. It was interesting to also observe that the moth was missing two of its limbs on one side of the body, leading to a strange tilt in its posture, probably the reason for the attitude that oozes in this frame

    The yellow colour is striking. Its eyes look quite peculiar in the close-up. Its quite interesting to see how it is managing without its two limbs. Good observation. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like bathed in Turmeric powder. ��It is difficult to imagine the way these insects lead their lives without all their limbs. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
