Bonjour Marie Christine,
Les Géométridés comptent vraiment beaucoup d'espèces intéressantes et belles. Et en plus ils sont quelque fois dotés de noms particulièrement séduisants! Fidonie de nerprun, c'est presque aristocratique:-). Belle pose du papillon sur cette herbe recourbée et des ailes avec une coloration subtile. J'ai photographié des espèces assez voisines, surtout par leur forme, les couleurs étant quelque peu différentes.
Contribution intéressante et probablement une première sur TN.
Un grand merci encore

Distinctive looking moth Marie, good POV and framing.
Great exposure, color, and nice detail, especially at the head, body, & antennae.
I see a little bug hiding under the blade of grass..Camera shy hey ;}
Well done,

Wonderful shot of this tiny moth and you are indeed lucky to have found it with its wings closed. Very impressive sharpness, colours and details with great lighting. I like this natural surrounding. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.
