When I first saw this orange moth, I was entering a lift and thought it looked like some orange butterfly sticker because it was so flat and pristinely symmetrical. Yet instinctively, I told myself to have another look and indeed, I was amazed by this small moth.

Its wing pattern and colour look interesting and would probably be well hidden amongst other vegetation, except for this time when it landed on the granite looking wall tile.

It would be great to know the identity of this beautiful creature. Someone asked me, was it the spirit of the dead like what is often told in the myths, and I chuckled out in laughter. What an imaginative mind!
