Giant Uranid Moth

Was at school with some of my friends hanging around the pull-up bar when I spotted this big, brown, boomerang-shaped 'paper' on the wall. I went close and realized it was a Giant Uranid Moth.

These moths were pretty common during the October-December period last year as I had spotted three of them in my condo, two elsewhere and now one at school. But this was the first time I managed to photograph one. This is not the biggest moth in Singapore, however. The Atlas moth, also considered common, is. I haven't seen one of those recently.

And around the grass I spotted this tiny grasshopper. Just took a sot as my camera was still turned on.

Great work Shawn! The last time I saw one in school, people were shooting water at it. :(
However, the moth did not care, and drank the water.
