Très, très jolie présentation de cette phalène picotée. Un beau mâle avec ces antennes volumineuses! Beau mariage de couleurs et magnifique cadrage avec beaucoup d'espace.

Bellissimo! I'm borrowing your language but it is the perfect way to describe this picture. The butterfly is beautiful with wonderful colors and markings. The composition is magnificent with the horizontal branch and the fresh green leaves.

bella composizione, ben costruita in orizzontale,bravo a mantenere efficace il
cromatismo delle ali sebbene in situazioni diverse di luce.mi fa piacere che inizi a prendere in considerazione le falene e di seguito le farfalle..complimenti

What an interesting moth, looking like a butterfly, except those formidable antennae Maurizio, perfectly illuminated by the soft rays of the sun and captured in fine focus against the emerald-green OOF BG. The WS demonstrates the same from below. TFS both of these fine images my friend.

Hi Marurizio, perfect capture of this butterfly with wonderful green BG my friend. Wonderful DOF and POV! TFS.
Simple yet so beautiful a composition.The green in the palette and the brown on the subjects makes a wonderful contrasts.It looks such an ethereal shot.The muted BG looks great and the red of the stem again presents a superb contrast. Thanks for sharing this...
P.S:I did a little workshop.hope you wont mind:)
Ciao Maurizio, you have a beautiful capture of this moth with very good light providing very excellent detail on the moth itself and great colour. The leaf behind it provides a good background. I might have been tempted to go for a different crop, and made the moth a little larger for your audience. I've prepared an example in the workshop.

This is an artful composition, I like it.
Nice light and color, great shades of green throughout..
Great detail/DOF and an interesting POV.

I like your bold cropping, Maurizio.
Sometimes it is better to be original than to follow the thumb rules. The long branch forms a vital part of this sharp and crisp image of a pretty moth.
The focus is sharp and the details are excellent.

Excellent capture of a male Common Heath Moth, caught from a great POV and set in a fine composition with the hawthorn branch against a great bokeh BG.
TFS this beauty,

Bien captada esta belleza que yo desconocía. Me gusta mucho que en las tomas de insectos se vea parte de su hábitat como en este caso, eso le dan gran valor añadido. Ténue y acertada luz con un fondo acertado.
Saludos: J. Ignasi.

Ciao Maurizio, c'è un perchè se questa falena pur comune è poco vista su TN, io ne ho qualche decina di foto e fanno tutte schifo, non so perchè ma mi esce fuori sempre qualche parte fuori fuoco, tu invece te la sei cavata molto bene ed anche la composizione è molto piacevole, bravo, ciao Silvio

A beautiful photo where the color of the OOF BG enhances the many colors of the moth. The composition where you left a lot of room on the right of the moth is great and gives the photo just that more to make it stand out among others.

Beautiful shot, moth against the green. :) I think You composed the photo really well, placing of the insect and DOF are perfect. Wonderful contrast.
Although 'iris' is right about the background noise, but otherwise a top notch photo.
Ciao e grazie, László

Hello Maurizio !
Looking through your gallery, I saw this onderful picture and I had to stop by. The moth is very beautiful, specially his antennasw which look like feathers. the contrast between the brown moth and the reen BG is striking, and I also like the composition, with the delicate plant coming out from the right border and ending with the chamin moth. Very well done !
