Moth or Hornet

Since childhood I have been fascinated by nature in its many forms, moths being one of my particular loves. Below is an example, it has transparent patches on its wings mimicking a hornet thus giving it protection from potential predators. This one readily walked onto my finger from being at rest, spread its wings, a lovely plump female alive in Kathmandu.

Nepalese Moth.
