Could you tell us what part of the world you live in? That will make the search so much easier.

Yah..Its from Pune, India
I am not from this field and I took the photograph just because I found the moth (?) interesting. So I don't have anything more to add about it!

They've got approximately 10,000 species of moths in India. Very Happy Maybe you should try submitting it to http://www.whatsthatbug.com?

I got lucky, I found it.

It is the male Eudocima materna

And it appears to be an agricultural pest, it attacks citrus fruit and sucks the juice out.
