Giant Moth in Kuching – Photo of the Day

Giant Moth
A Giant Moth in Fort Margherita, Kuching

For today’s picture I decided to post something a little different. I don’t go in much for photographing bugs, but sometimes they’re too big to ignore. I can’t say this guy didn’t make me jump when it flew out in front of me at Fort Margherita in Kuching, but when it landed again nearby I thought it worth trying to get a picture. The moth is huge. Each wing is about the size of my hand. After I snapped this photo, the moth flew off again outside the fort.

    Do you know what’s the name for this particular moth? Please do reply me. It would mean a lot to me if you do.

    I remember doing some searching when I posted the picture, I think I found a likely candidate for the scientific name, but no common name. It doesn’t seem like there’s a good place on-line to find moth/butterfly names.
