[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Daphnis nerii (formerly Deilephila nerii), the oleander hawk-moth or army green moth, is a moth of the Sphingidae family.

It is in my hand.

Daphnis nerii is a large hawk-moth found in wide areas of Africa and Asia. It is a migratory species, flying to parts of eastern and southern Europe during the summer, particularly Turkey.

Hello Biswarup,
And absolutely gorgeous Hawk-moth you have here. The colors and markings are stunning to say the least. Super sharp and perfectly exposed image. A pleasure to view such a beautiful insect.
