[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Oleander moth, with their camoflauge coloring looking more like a wasp than a moth, can do lots of damage in their catapillar stage - they eat only (big surprise here) oleander bushes. And do they ever eat them, we have some photos I will probably upload here at some point of them destroying our oleander. Oh well, at least they are pretty to look at in both major stages of their lives!

Hi Jacque, great shot of the moth. I don't think I've ever seen a shot of a moth laying eggs, and I know I've never seen an Oleander Moth, so you've given me two first here. The shot is sharp, with good colour and excellent composition.

Thanks, John
