Female Indian Moon Moth (Actias selene, Saturniidae)

On this night out in the Pu’er hills with the MV light, I was visited by not one, but two, female Moon Moths simultaneously. It was getting late and was starting to drizzle rain, so I had already packed up the camera and dismantled my sheet leaving the light on so I could see what I was doing.

Typical of the Saturniids, they are erratic flyers and crash and flap frantically where ever they land which is why it can be difficult to find a pristine specimen in the wild unless it has just emerged from pupation (or you raise them in captivity).

These moths are too big to photograph using my usual macro setup, so I had to unpack and disassemble my camera in the rain to get these shots.

The ouroboros is traditionally depicted as a serpent or dragon in the process of swallowing its own tail, resulting in the formation of a circle. Unsurprisingly the ouroboros is most often regarded as a symbol of infinity and renewal, though it is also widely interpreted to be demonstrating the principles of cyclical transformation and the creation of life through death. It has also been used as a symbol for totality, self-sufficiency, androgyny, mercury, and truth. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Art: “Oroboros” by Vasily Kafanov
