The Atlas moth (Attacus atlas) is thought to be the largest moth in the world, with a wing span of 4 -5 inches, is found in tropical regions of Asia. This beauty is resting on some reeds at the Pura Tirta Empul temple in central Bali
What a magnificent creature! Lucky find, Ron 🙂
A surprise for sure. Thanks Meredith.
This is so breathtakingly lovely, Ron. How fortunate you were to see it and to photograph such beauty.
Thanks Sylvia. I didn’t think he was real when I first approached.
What a beautiful moth, Ron. He looks like an antique!
No, I am the antique. 🙂 Thanks Cathy.
Haha, we’re both antiques then, Ron!
Beauty indeed Ron, love the composition on this one.
Thank you Tina, as always.
WOW!!! That is fantastic.
Thank you so much and thanks for the visit.
Beautiful – love how the dark background contrasts with the almost glowing colors of the moth and reeds.
Thanks Carol. I had forgotten about the image until a few weeks ago and enjoyed working with it.
