Two Beautiful Moths in the Sumatra Rainforest

When you go on a journey to explore nature, you'll often find a lot of new things. In reality, these things aren't new; you just haven't seen them before.

I just went for a nature walk in North Aceh's Saweuk forest park. I discovered a moth perched on a leaf there. I had never seen a moth like that before, but it was strangely beautiful.




Thanks to a Google search, I knew it was a clearwing moth (Synanthedon sp.) right away. The moth is black with hints of copper yellow, metallic green, and blue. It has clear, transparent wings, and the tips of its hind legs are hairy; it's a lovely sight to see this part.


I moreover noticed a white tussock moth (Euproctis sp.) dozing off on a leaf. You might be wondering what makes me so certain that it is dozing off. I can respond to that; to the best of my knowledge, this sort of moth is a nocturnal insect.





It's a really cute moth. For fear of waking it up, I took great care when taking photos.

All of the images here are my own work, taken with Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.

I've never seen a moth like that, l would have thought it was a fly or wasp with those clear wings. Interesting.

Thanks @kaazoom. Yeah, when I first saw this, I was astonished. Apparently, there is an insect as beautiful as this in the wild.

Both moths are cool, but the first one is absolutely glamorous. 🙂Never saw that one in the books or on the Internet. What an interesting species. Photographs are also great.

Thanks @borjan. That's right; I was having problems finding the precise scientific name. Despite my persistent Google searches.

Lovely to see other species , wel captured and thanks for sharing
