Atlas Moths Mating In The Wild ~ A Very Rare Shot

February 27, 2016

Hi Luv et alii,

Once I have seen the Ashen Light from my backyard in our 8″ Lightbridge reflector. Four times in fifteen years I have spotted an Atlas Moth. Only once have I seen two mating. This is a rare, make that very rare, shot. The wind was blowing and conditions were far from good let alone ideal so I took a couple hundred shots. Hopefully there will be better shots than this one. If there are I’ll post them.

 

Atlas Moth, Snake Head Moth, mating pair, Philippines
This is such a thrill for me.

Take care, I just checked there are better shots to follow,
