IMG_9993錦紋燕蛾 North Queensland Day Moth(Zodiac Moth),Alcides zodiaca

錦紋燕蛾分布於澳洲東北部和巴布亞紐幾內亞,是晝行性蛾類,喜好訪花. 此蛾在澳洲冬天被記錄到有遷移的活動,頗為特殊.

我得感謝當時民宿的女主人指認出此蛾,否則我根本不認識牠.那時拍攝是在陰暗逆光的環境,拍到後看見相機LCD上的成像,才驚覺他是如此地美麗!!

North Queensland Day Moth(Zodiac Moth) is distributed in northeast Australia & Papua New Guinea. It is a day-time-flight moth and visits flower usually.

I have to thank the owner of the birdwatchers' cabin I stayed for pointing out this moth, otherwise I would miss this extraordinary beauty. It was untill I looked at the LCD on camera then I realized what a stunning creature I was photographing !!

This moth species has also been observed to migrate in large group during winter in Australia. Really special.

Taken in Cairns, Australia.
