Hello Jitti!
What a nice profile of Creatonotus moth species :) Great DOF and details.
This picture clearly shows that members of Arctiidae family are similar in shape and colours (in meaning of self-defence) all over the worlds.
Anyway, if you like please compare your species this one presented earlier by me :>
TFS and best regards,

Hello Jitti

Hello Jitti,
Fine capture of this Arctiid moth, the composition and appearance being remarkably similar to Peter's White Ermine moth. Your shot is sharp, and well presented against a fine contrasting BG
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Jitti.
What an interesting (I say amazing) POV, fantastic illumination of the moth and reproduction of all its details. Sharpness of the moth image is simply perfect. BG and composition of the picture, its colours are wonderful too. Great close-up. Bravo and my best wishes.

bonjour jitti
de par sa forme je pense qu'il s'agit d'un nocture mais pourtant ses couleurs sont tres vives,l'exposition est bien maitrisée.

A very good one indeed...
Good sharpness as well as the colouration.
Composed well too...

Very fine capture from the side, JC.
The colours and patterns on the abdomen of the moth are very well recorded. The perspective also gives an interesting view of the antennae of this good looking moth.

Hola Jitti,
excelente macro de gran nitidez y mucho detalle, la iluminación y el fondo muy bonitos. Saludos

Hello Jitti,
I like his unusual POV which is very original. Those colors and details are really amazing and well calibrated. The use of flash is obvious here but it is well exposed and very bright for us to see all details. This is interesting specie. Thanks,

Another wonderful moth from you!
I really love the pattern and colors on this beautiful species' body and wings as well as teh sharp details everything is presented here with.
The POV is very good her and gives a great angle for the eyes and antennas, too.
Good contrast with the BG and excellent DOF, too.
