  1. Whaattt?! 10,000th photo, woohoo! Congrats! And, this is a fantastic fella to represent that accomplishment! I have no idea on the ID, but Subf. Ennominae would be a good place to start...Maybe Tribe Boarmiini? Posted 4 months ago, modified 4 months ago
    1. Thanks, and Boarmiini looks to have some candidates, complicated group though! Posted 4 months ago
      1. Definitely complicated. I looked through 100's of species and couldn't find a match. Posted 4 months ago
        1. Thanks for trying! Posted 4 months ago
          1. What about this one (photo #6), or something similar:

            1. The antennae don't match at all, but maybe it's a gender difference... Posted 4 months ago
              1. The antennae is the mood killer, it is otherwise so close:

                And note the description...one of many color forms.

                1. If you click on the image of the green moth on the africanmoth link that I included above, you'll see it was fluffy antennae, but I don't think they match your moth because the antennae on your moth look bipectinate, while the one in the link looks pectinate. BUT, that tells us that it's a gender difference. So, maybe there is a similar species or genus...I will keep looking! Posted 4 months ago
  2. Wow! Incredible!
    The best way of celebration by any wildlife photographer is to observe the nature and capture the best possible image. Congratulations!!!
