[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During my recent vacation in Delhi, I captured this Hawk Moth in the garden of my son's residence with my mobile.

Daphnis nerii, the oleander hawk-moth or army green moth, is a moth of the family Sphingidae. It was described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae.

Hi Ram,

The leave is framing well the insect. The point of view is showing the details of the Oleander Hawl-moth. The light is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
