Wonderful colours.. the name fluorescent moth is also new to me. You should post all other pictures which may help you to get the information. And it is a nice capture.

Hi Haraprasan
Excellent shot of this moth - as your title implies it is almost glowing! Great detail and focus, but I think the framing is a little too bold and slightly distracting.
Kind Regards

Hello Haraprasan,
The only lead to an ID I can give of this fine capture of a beautiful moth is that it is some species of Geometer, a large family of mainly nocturnal moths the caterpillers of which are commonly known as loopers.
Excellent dorsal POV taken with fine sharpness and use of flash.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hi My dear friend Haraprasan, an iteresting and nice shot of this butterfly from dorsal POV.

Hi Haraprasan,

I have never seen (nor heard of) a fluorescent moth! I would think a green color like this is unusual for a moth. Nice sharp details and a lovely diagonal position. It looks like a painting on parchment.

Hello Haraprasan,

Awesome colors and details are here in this "Geometrinae". Probably "Agathia Lycaenaria".

You have captured with all its florescence. I like the diagonal composition and soft creamy BG.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Haraprasan,
I expect you found this beautiful Moth sitting on a wall under a lamp somewhere. Wonderful shape, markings and colours all nicely shown here. Excellent capture!

Hi Haraprasan,

This is such a beautiful specie. Lovely green with fine markings on the wings. The framing is very good against the clear background. Well done and best regards.


This green Agathia Moth is also very striking in its appearance, HP.
