[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The delightfully named Chinese Character (Cilix glaucata) is a moth which, when resting, resembles a bird dropping. It uses this as its defence from hungry birds and the like. Mind you I did once find a bird dropping that I initially thought was a chinese Character!

Hi John,
very good colors and brightness evenly distributed, excellent focus and an interesting environment .... and what a kind of camouflage on this moth! TFS
