A really sharp shot of this moth, Dmitry.
You can really see how well they camouflage against the BG.
Beautiful markings and colors. A great POV.
TFS this great example of mimicry.

Hi Dmitry.
a lovely shot of this well camouflaged moth. So sharp and POV is great.
Well done,
Nick :-)

A brilliant capture that shows the moth's amazing camouflage and it's natural habitat.

Hello Dmitry,
Frankly speaking, we rarely cross paths on TN, mainly owing to limitations of critiques permissible each day. Since I respond to every critique on my pictures, you critique on my recent spider picture has brought me here. However, it is a great pleasure to look at your work, which, though not prolific, is of high standard.
The Broken-barred Carpet moth is an attractive species which gets its name from the intricate patterns on its wings, I suppose.
The picture is very graphic despite the colour of the BG matching with that of the subject.
Thanks once again for pointing out the exact ID of the spider for me.
Regards,
Ram

Hi Dmitry
Another great photo. I think the WB is set not properly - I've created small Workshop with my version. I think now the picture is more natural. TFS
