|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This wasp moth is dark metallic blue with a couple of white polka-dots dotting the wings and upper abdomen.|
The tip of the moth's abdomen is bright red.
It looks like a very dangerous wasp, but in fact is a harmless moth. The caterpillars are orange or dark orange with long black hairs.
Common in Mexico and Central America.
