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.
Then i got closer. Many more shots.
Even closer. Again, many more shots.
Of course, I had to cover this beauty from a few different angles as well :D
If you love Lantern bug / lanternfly , do check out the blue type, Pyrops whiteheadi I found in Danum Valley.
