Hello Luciano,
Sometimes the moth and butterflies are very close to human activity....
Excellent details and colors.

Spot metering may cause this and this is the perfect setting to bring the true colour and detail, excellent.

Hello Luciano,
Congratulation 🎊 for this attractive Moth and I think I have seen this species here in the field from my window. Quite well presentation, at least not man made articles (visible) in frame. Details look good. White background doesn't look bad sometime.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,

Ciao Luciano, gran bel regalo d'addio dal Madagascar, l'ambientazione non sarà al top ma la falena è strepitosa, magnifici i riflessi sulle ali, dettagli strabilianti, colori fantastici e ottima nitidezza, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
