|The Crimson-speckled Flunkey (Utetheisa pulchella) is a moth of the family Arctiidae. It is found in Africa, Southern Europe, Central and Southern Asia and Australia.|
The wingspan is 29-42 mm.
Well it says this is widespread but I have only once seen it. This one I found early morning on a grass covered mountain slope. Extremely difficult to spot in similar coloured grass especially with folded wings. Had to take a long shot because of the dense grass in its surroundings and with some wind.

Nice capture but it lacks sharpness and details. The colours are beautiful, the POV and DOV as well.
