    While visiting an orchid farm in Chiang Mai we also visited a butterfly greenhouse. Didn't take tones of pictures else I would still be there, but one butterfly caught my attention so I took a picture:

    Well technically that's not a butterfly but a moth.

    Hi all,
    Nice, that is a Giant Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas). They are related to Silk-moths, and don't feed as adults.
