Gorgeous Lantern Bug from Endau Rompin!

Yes, I finally found a Lantern Bug/lanternfly! (Laternaria ruhli). Lucky me! It really made the whole Endau Rompin trip more worthwhile than it already was! Part One of my Endau Rompin visit post is here.

Edit: i have since found more lovely lantern bugs. Check out my collection here.

It was also my very first time sighting and shooting a Lantern Bug/lanternfly so you can imagine how excited I was! :D.

Naturally, I took all the precaution I could. I started taking shots of it from far far away - like this. Many of this, I mean.
