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 ...

It's summer in this neck of the woods, and of course, the cicada's are out in full swing. This year they are out in record numbers due to La Niña. A few weeks ago I was almost in pain due to how loud their song was at this park (Kangaroo River Trail- Morton National Park). This time around, it was quieter as they've started to move on.
