29 moth species that you can find at Kiram’s Village, Kundasang at the foothill of Mount Kinabalu

I actually took these photos in 2009, when Kiram’s Village was in its infancy. My family and I stayed in one of the chalet for a night, and we had a barbecue dinner. As usual, the weather was cold and wet. When I woke up the next morning, I was amazed by the numbers of the moths that swarmed the unit. Well, literally. More than 30 species spotted, and I bet that the owner of the chalet did not know about it. Kiram Village is known for its flowers before, and maybe with this post, it can be known for its moths!
