|Just a few minutes ago, I noticed this Moth low on a wall of my residence. It is evening time with the sun setting and the light falling on the wall was mellow. I took this picture with my compact camera. It is getting warmer now and insects have started coming out.|

you are very lucky as the insects were visiting you in your residence, Very nice image, great details and sharpness.
a monumental, very clear, remarkably well lighted, well composed presentation, instantly drawing the attention to your perfect portrait of a small day active moth. Moths quite often do us the favour to rest on the well contrasting plain background of painted walls. You made a good decision to take that chance. Thank you!
With best regards,
