[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautiful moth slept over a day in my balcony and was released the next evening, but only after having a photo session on my dad's hand. We did not catch it, it landed there by itself, probably to take a little bit more rest before going away. It would have been a pity not to take a photo of it.

Robert Nice shot and a good note. I like the eye catch on the 2nd frame. Well shot and TFS Ganesh

Hello Robert !
Wow, you have a beautiful litte friend here ! I love his colors, and I think it's an Elephant Hawk Moth (Deilephila elpenor), I have seen it as a caterpillar but never as a moth. It's a nice capture, with excellent details, natural colors, beautiful composition and POV. Very well done !

Hello Robert,
gexcellent sharpness and details of this moth, beautiful species.
grreat capture. TFS.
Regards Ferran.
