Quickly, capture the king of all moths (identified by his royal cape), and ransom him for a kings (moth) fortune.:blah:

Thanks so much for letting me know the name of the moth, i was waiting and hoping for it to open its wings to take a shot but it was quite happy basking in the sunlight for hours, turned my back for a minute and it as gone! clever and beautiful little creature. regards.
