Very nice moth and you have captured it very perfectly.
A very nice clear and colourful moth. Good focus and clarity taken against a nice clear background.
Thanks for sharing regards Bill
Excellent details and colors.

Hi Ram,beautiful capture of this moth,in my country i can see more times the subspecies "phaegea",very similar at your. The quality is very professional,always difficult to take so well a dark insect on a white background! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
It is a superb pic although it's very simple - probably its simplicity is what makes it so unique... Only the black-ish moth and the white wall, great contrast and sharpness. The moth's position in the frame is also very effective. This is an absolute perfect minimalistic photo. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
