TG 4 in microscope mode, single shot, poor light.

The moth was in our hall this morning. I suppose it to be some kind of geometric moth. Grateful for more information.

Seems to be Grammodes bifasciata, a common and widespresd species

Hello Geoffrey,
You were fortunate to have found this beautifully marked moth in your hall. I'm glad you took the time to photograph it for us. Great job under such low lighting conditions. I believe you hit the ID right on the button.
Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to adjust the white balance and add a bit of contrast to see if it would bring out the natural colors.

Good capture of this interesting Moth, Geoffrey.
Ron has done a really wonderful workshop on it to make the picture better.
Thanks for sharing it.
