Attacus atlas moth - Kemenuh Butterfly Park, Bali, Indonesia
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Attacus atlas, the Atlas moth, is a large saturniid moth endemic to the forests of Asia. The species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae.

We spent a fair bit of time exploring the Kemenuh Butterfly Park in Bali, Indonesia. I can highly recommend it if you are in Bali and in the Ubud area.

Ridiculously heavy crop, but: The swarm has invaded my blinds' gearbox ... Saxonian wasps. Not the most aggressive species - but uncomfortably close.

I call this one "waspish welcome" ... Not much of a shot, but it proves a point, or rather, a multitude of potential sticking points :p

btw. The lack of sharpness is motion blur ... these guys are fast, and constantly on the move ...
