Very nice captures of this uncommon species. Extra applause for your effort in making the trip to add this moth to your portfolio. Many would have been too lazy to make the sortie. Obviously Ally has zoom-zoom.

Thank you. Funny thing was, when I was taking picture, I hear one girl saying to her friend: he asked me, do you want to see a moth that looks like a hummingbird? I was like, I can ask you that now! But I didn't want to miss the opportunity with the moth.
When I was there, I saw this bunny. His expression was: Yes, I'm stealing. No, I'm not sorry.

Some red dragon I don't know.
