This moth was resting on a rock near the waterfall, even with strong wind blowing. I kind of impress with it as it have to go very hard to stay stil. The whole process is amazing.

Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Arthropoda

Class: Insecta

Order: Lepidoptera

I think this is a kind of tiger moth. Any idea?

Thanks to Batu for providing the valuable information.

Hallo Kean, this is an excellent capture of this colourful moth.
Lepidoptera, Geometridae
Geographical range of this species: from the north east Himalayas to Indonesia.
Pictures of live specimens of this species are rare. Thank you for posting.

Hi Kean,
this is a nice picture but small you can post up to 800x px.
Lovely colours, good details and POV. IMO it's a bit too centred.
Well done.

Impresionante polilla Keanhoon con maravillosos colores y muy buena nitidez.
El cuadro es algo pequeño pero bien compuesto.
Es agradable el contraste entre los tonos del insecto y la superficie donde se encuentra.
Buen trabajo.
Saludos... Ricardo

Impressive moth Keanhoon with wonderful colors and very good clarity.
The frame is something small but very compound.
It is pleasant the contrast between the tones of the insect and the surface where he is.
Good work.
