Hello Fotis,
Not an easy critter to photograph, but always interesting to watch and admire. You have captured this particular specimen very well. Focus is sharp and colors beautiful and natural. I really like the rufous coloring on the underside of it's wing. Just enough blur in it's wings to show motion. Awesome shot!!
I really enjoy viewing these little moths from around the world. It seems every country has it's own unique species with colors and markings a little different.
