Your letter to the bugman:  It has a texture like wood and is a flying insect.. It is there at the same place since 5 hours and hadn’t move an inch..
How you want your letter signed:  Dhruv


Dear Dhruv,
This is a Sphinx Moth or Hawkmoth in the family Sphingidae, but we are not certain of the species.  Many Hawkmoths have brightly colored underwings that are hidden by brown or gray wings that act as good camouflage if the moth alights on a tree trunk.
