Hello Nagaraj,
The contrasting colours in this macro are very beautiful. They match very well. Impressive sharpness, details and an excellent composition.

Hello Nagaraj,
Wonderful macro,excellent sharpness and colours scheme.

Hi Nagraj,
What an amazing macro capture of this beautiful moth with perfect POV, gorgeous lighting, superb sharp details, and brilliant natural colors. So nice to see its wings wide open, and I like its long antennae, big black eyes, and long legs. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a nice time!
By the way, I posted a moth just now, too.

Hello Nagaraj,
I can not help identify the moth even though you have portrayed it ever so well with very clear details and natural colours.
Very nice macro work.
Regards Les.

Hello Nagaraj,
An interesting Moth, cannot help with the ID. Good sharpness anf fine colozrs as usual. This time you have caught the moth a little bit too close to the frame.

Namaskar Nagaraj

A beautiful moth, a nice specimen and you have made a nice picture out of it. And finally it has a identity. It is Parapoynx stagnalis (Zeller, 1852) Crambidae.

Beautiful capture of this Parapoynix stagnalis. Luxurious details defining the wing, and a piece of green moss is a beautiful backdrop.

Congratulations, Nagaraj!

Hello Nagaraj,
This is certainly an attractive moth which decided to give you a good fully opened wing pose. I really like the beautiful markings and attractive colors it displays. It is not often that you find moths resting like this with outstretched wings, you were very fortunate. Outstanding detail and perfect exposure. Your choice of an f/19 aperture resulted in wonderful DOF. Well done!!
