[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A photo just a while ago...It was a rainy night when my fiancee starts to scream and ran away when she sees something's flying around...she thought it was a cockroach...but to my surprise, when it landed it was this beauty...and i immediately started to take photos because this is a once in a lifetime encounter for someone like me living in the city...believe it or not this beauty also flew right into my hands "check my workshop"...i don't know how to explain it but this a unique experience for me to see and touch this wonderful creature...though this photo is not a capture from DSLR camera...but still it's a wonderful experience for me....after taking photos and the rain had stopped, i decided to set it free, and it just flew away at the backyard like nothing had happened....

From the looks, the size and design of it's wings, I am certain that this beauty belongs to the family of Sphinx Moth.... i will also post the other photos at the workshop....Hope everyone will like this photo. :-)
