Hello Jitti,
Another gem from you, this time in the form of a fine sharp shot of a Geometer Moth that is new to me.
Great composition against a contrasting green BG. Interesting to see the curious white hair scales on the wings.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Wow, this is an amazing capture, JC!
If this is a moth, then it is perhaps one of the most colourful of the entire species.
What beautiful black, white and red colours and patterns on its wings!
The shot is brilliant in every respect.
TFS and regards.

Your Moth14 -:) is really amazing. Its size and colorfulness are perfect as well as the composition of the shot, great details and sharpness of the moth image and nice blurred a bit BG. I also like soft lighting and perfect exposure of the picture. Superb done first-class shot. Bravo.

Hello Jitti,

A beautiful moth indeed! I'd say it's a Pterothysanus sp. (Callidulidae, Pterothysaninae).

Hi Jitti

A lovely capture of this colourful moth (if indeed it really is a moth). From this POV it actually looks like a butterfly except for the antennae that perhaps reveals its true identity.

The composition is great with the insect positioned right on the diagonal line. The colours are rich, the details are well defined, the greenery in the BG provides a good contrast for the red, black, and white colours of the moth, and the exposure was well controlled with excellent balance between the dark and brighter colours.

Good work and TFS.

Hi Jitti,
Wonderful sharpness and clarity of colour and pattern. This is one interesting moth and you have photographed it well,

Hermosa mariposa Jitti.
Los colores contrastan de una manera muy viva con las plantas en las que se mezcla en esta imagen.
Buenos tonos y genial DoF.
Un saludo, JL.
