Photographed at my home in Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia.
It has been identified as Ophiusa tirhaca of the Noctuidae family.
This large pale orange coloured moth seemed to be just waking up and drying off it’s wings
after emerging from it’s cocoon on one of my Jade plants.
Mounted Print Only just awake
It slowly stretched out it’s wings and began to flutter them, building up speed and eventually taking flight.
