Description

A six-legged(legs are yellow) little fly. Its translucent wings with yellow-orange-brown and wavy black/white markings and black spots are wider than the fly is long. Eyes are reddish-black/dark crimson with white rims. The head is dark while the fly's back has a black and white pattern(looks similar to a ladybug's pattern w/o the red color). On the top of the head between the eyes is a golden-brown shape. The abdomen has an alternating pattern in the order of: black/white/gold//black/white/gold//black/white/gold. In the third photo, the fly is small enough to fit in between 2 college-ruled lines of a notebook.

Green moth - approx. 30mm wing span. Leaf-like camoflauge. Entered through patio window on a warm night and stuck to the wall for a while.
I see some really interesting looking moths in this area near the Matson Conservation Area.

This beautiful butterfly was sipping the juices of a few decaying mangoes and I managed to get this picture before my cat scared it away.
