Nice capture with sharp details and natural colors.
A gorgeous image filled with lovely colours and details on the moth's wings. Here I can definitely say the autumn colours of this butterfly are a sheer delight. I really like how you placed the moth in the middle of the frame, and in a pose so close to one’s eye. This way one can observe and appreciate the details of this splendidly looking insect even better. The details of this beauty are really smashing and I especially refer to the clarity of furry body and wings. Focus, sharpness and framing is great and presented in a most delightful manner. Thanks for sharing.
A fine macro of what I think is O. chenopodiata, rather than mucronata, though both species are variable.
This specimen lacks the typical stong dark lines at the edges of the median band that mucronata has.
Great sharpness, lighting and contrasting dark BG.
Well done and thanks,

my compliments because you have could manage a very good light and in a perfect way to show the wings, knowing the difficulties that we have for these kind of pictures...

Very beautiful the picture of this "persian carpet". I know this moth well,seeing it quite often. Your picture shows the fine nuances of the brown patterns so well. Most beautiful and pleasant contrast to the green background too
