Night Moth

 



The other day, evening rather, I found this unique-looking moth on the back of a cane chair. We mostly see brown or gray moths with some patterns but this one was a subdued mix of green, orange and brown. I checked out my favourite bug website (www.thaibugs.com) and found out that it's the Night Moth/Theretra nessus. There's something new everyday but most of them are drab-looking. I thought this one, despite not being a clear shot, was blog-worthy:)

An unusual colour for a moth. I like its glossy look. Nice picture- definitely blog-worthy.

It looks like something straight from outer space. Very unique indeed.

It looks very similar to a camouflage moth I posted about a month or so ago.

err... looks very different from those I have seen before. Its legs are sharp and long. This shot is definitely blog-worthy!

Wow. It is interesting. I like the blend of brown and green colors. It must find it easy to camouflage itself.

Some of the moths really are beautiful. Lovely color shadings on this one.

Joey, the bugs are similar and it's easier to find the names of the ones who visit me!:)

Noelle/Sweet bay/ Kiki....maybe I'll post one day about the more commonly seen moths around here. Thanks for your words!
