Hi Luciano
Nice picture. I often see moths like this one in my town, but only by night, near lamps on walls, never in the wild.

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon la Phalène sacrée. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
