A stunning image Dennis
I have seen these Atlas Moths before, but never in such a deep red colour.
The cropping is very tight, but the image is sharp and well composed and looks great with the black background.

you start with a nice picture,
The colours and pattern of the butterfly are amazing and the details are very good. But I don't like the hard flash light,
a weak fill-in is OK for a small light up of shadows but this don't look natural. Maybe the composition is a bit tight but it's still a nice picture.
Welcome to TN.
Fantastic colours! Brilliant.
Spot on exposure. sharp and good composition.
I don't mind the crop.
Could be even beter with a background. Of course this is not always possible as it required to photograph nocturnal animals by daylight, or to use a combo of ring flash and standard flash, and with also a camera which can tune the 2 to eachother. This is an expensive combo which I also don't have.
What's on the leave? Is it a cocoon of its little brother?

Welcome to TN
Great iamge of this giant moth
I think th eflash in this shot was too harsh which has resulted in un-natural colours. You should have a bit more room around the moth
Good start though

A grand welcome to you on TN. This is an absolute beauty you have captured and the colours are so bright and saturated. Very impressive sharpness and perfect DOF. The black BG helps in highlighting the moth and the image is so attractive. You start well and I hope to see many more from you in the coming days.

Good sharp and colourful picture.
Personally I prefer a little more space around the butterfly.

Great photo of this Moth in a tiny composition. But the colours are splendid and the sharpness is top. Excellent dark BG and very good POV.

Fantastic colour,the tones are rich and well saturated.
Lovely lighting with excellent contrast.
The dark BG really shows this beauty off.
Great job on the POV as well.

A pin-sharp capture of this remarkable butterfly, showing all its colours and patterns clearly.
I like the diagonal composition and would suggest that you leave a little more space around the image to make the composition even better.

Incredible image Dennis,
Very sharp and detailed with gorgeous colors. I really like the black BG.
I was in the Philippines three years ago on a Mission trip and would love to return to your beautiful country again someday. TFS.
