This month's Picture of the Month award goes unanimously to Les Day for his photograph of an amazing red Sesiidae moth in the Kaeng Krachan National Park.

The Sesiidae, or clearwing moths, are a family of the Lepidoptera. In most species they have wings only partially covered by the normal lepidopteran scales, leaving them transparent. It is not common to see such a beautiful arthropod, and they are notoriously difficult to photograph because of their manner of flight. You can read more of where Les took his amazing photograph by clicking here. Be sure to also visit Les' amazing website SamuiButterflies.Com

Funny that not only I - with a particular interest in snakes - am hoping for these cool, dry months to pass quickly. Apparently it's the same for the insect enthusiasts.
It's not impossible to find stuff this season, but it is just more abundant/ active when it gets warmer and more humid.
I know of a couple of Vogel's Pit Vipers that have been hangin at the same spot for a month now.
And from my experience from previous years, I wouldn't be surprised if they're still there a month from now. But I can't wait till they all start crawling again...

Seems like you got some luck as well on your KK trip. That's certainly a pretty butterfly, and so is the tiny moth with it's hairy hind legs. Nice shots.

About the foot print... I'm afraid I can't tell you the answer either.
2 inches width is quite large. Maybe a porcupine...? Were there more tracks around, did some have longer feet?
