hi jitti; This is very unusual and difficult pov for this amazing moth kind! Great sharpness and details on the face and superb dof, all the abdomen in focus! TFS

Hello Jitti,
Very interesting moth with tails you've captured here. Sharp details and natural colours. Stands out very nicely against the dark background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

That's a very interesting moth, Jitti,
seems to have a tail, that looks very unusual.
I also don't know the name, anyway it's a wonderful insect and you captured it very nice, thanks

Excellent portrait of a notodontid moth new to me. Good that Peter could ID it.
Close detailed and sharp capture with good lighting from the flash in a fine presentation.

Hello Jitti!
It's a pleasure to get ackuainted with your latest moth. It's so unbeleivably hairy - I mean that you have presented perfectly it's surface structure.

Hi Jitti.
You managed to picture a very nice specimen of the Moth. Dark green BG suits for its colour palette very well. I also like the composition of the shot and impressive POV. Image of the Moth seems to me over sharpened a bit. However, nice picture and my best wishes.
