Nocturnal Flying Insect: Blair's Wainscot

Sedina buettneri, also known as Blair's wainscot, is a species of moth belonging to the family Noctuidae. This species was first described by the German entomologist, Eduard von Hering, in 1858.

This includes a type of nocturnal flying insect that usually moves a lot at night. For those of you who like photographing insects, being able to find these moths during the day is something special, as they are relatively quiet during the day.

Here are some photos that I took some time ago in the forest area of North Aceh.

That is an amazing creature. I've never seen such a thing. It looks almost like a cross between an owl and a bat. It looks really big. The photos are awesome!

Yeah, its face borrowed the face of an owl. Thanks for the nice comment and also for the compliment, Carolyn. 😊
