A moth on a beach in Cancun, Mexico. Photo by: Rhett A. Butler.
This hypnotic moth was photographed on a beach in Cancun, showing there’s more to this fashionable vacation spot than drinks and sun.
To date the species of this moth hasn’t been identified.
Editor’s note: Thanks to Timothy Bonebrake (@bonebraking) this insect has now been identified as a butterfly — Hamadryas guatemalena. Thank you Tim!
