We actually found him in a vegetable garden at a convent/school. it was amongst the vegetables. i think it had just emerged from a cocoon as it was quite docile at first. I held it ad took some pics and then put it on the flower. after a while it flew away. a rare pleasure to have met this little fella. I love the baby pink on the underside, it is a very pretty moth.
