Recorded Width: 5mm,  Height: 22mm  -  Nest, Maxwell's Hill, Malaysia

Cyana tettigoniodes

Every new morning in the hills,and in particular at the nest, brings excitement to what the day ahead will bring. This one morning though, as I leapt out of bed to the sounds of fulvettas and gibbons, I noticed a black strip on the bed frame, my thigh and the bedsheet almost smothering it. 

It just moved ever so slightly to the right to avoid the morning crush. How delightful to have the moth waiting by politely at bedside and not in your face in the dark night.
