[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an Atlas moth. Been in search of this elusive moth. Searched through a Thai Butterfly park - found a dead one. Eventually got MANY live ones in the Bali park. A nice park - must go for butterfly enthusiaists. Not VERY big though.

Hi Kiran.
Very interesting idea. Great magnification ratio. Excellent composition but it is more important how to improve this type of shooting.

I think you already have known it. However, I repeat some key moments. Aperture value (f/2.8) is too large. It is not necessary to aspire to the minimal distance of shooting. At minimal distance DOF is very shallow despite even small aperture values. This mistake I have admitted yesterday, photographing the microscopic flower, one of that I photographed in autumn and did it very successfully. Yesterday I did not manage any good macro shot. It is better then to use crop. What has happened with background (its colours) I do not know.
My best wishes and TFS.
