Persistence

This moth kept returning to under our house, demanding to have its portrait taken. So I did.

A search revealed it to be a zodiac moth (Alcides metaurus) a diurnal feeder, also called the North Queensland day moth.

You obviously have to look a bit snazzier if you're going out in the daytime!
