[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this month on the ceiling of ground floor. The ground floor of my place in Nakon Nayok is an open space. I used ladder and 90 degree look up to take this picture.

All I know this is a Geometridae. More detail on this species is up to our good friends to help in ID.
Thanks for visiting.

Order: Lepidoptera (Butterflies and Moths)
Superfamily: Geometroidea
Family: Geometridae (Geometrid Moths)

Hi Jitti,
this butterfly looks wonderful against this dark BG, makes it pop out very well. Very nice POV, I like the fact that the wings are fully spread out and the details are well visible.
Nice work.

This one has a really beautiful design.
Excellent shot.

What a pretty moth, JC!
Your initiative to use a ladder to capture this picture of a moth stuck to the ceiling is praise-worthy. The result is excellent, to say the least.
I like the colours and patterns on its wings.
Apparently, you have not used fill flash here and have still captured a great shot.

Hello Jitti, :)

How are you today my friend? This is another beautiful capture. Wonderful sharpness and detail in the wings! Very nice BG he has landed upon in your place, ideal for this photograph. Take care, and as always thank You for sharing.

Hello Jitti,
Excellent capture of a very attractive geometer moth. This is sharp and well presented against a good contrasting (ceiling) BG.
Unfortunately the available litterature on tropical moths is very limited, which rather restricts ID possibilities.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
