Hmmm... ta fotka i mi sie podoba i czegos jej brak. Podoba mi sie perspektywa - motyl "patrzy" w strone, gdzie w kazdrze jest duzo wolnej przestrzeni. A nie bardzo do gustu przypada mi wlasnie to, ze przez wolna przestrzen (cma zajmuje ledwo 1/4 kadru) owad jest tak maly :)
A tak na marginesie, z tego co pamietam to te fotki robiles chyba wlasnie w rezerwacie Spala ;> (zajecia z 1 grupa ;>).

hi Krzysztof,
nice capture, the focus is very good, great sharpness, lovely colours, nice composition,
tfs & regards

Hi Krzysztof.
This moth is really beautiful and you managed to reproduce it very well. Excellent soft lighting and natural colours. I also like beautiful leaves and level of their sharpness. BG is so unusual, interesting and suitable for pictured scene. Lovely well done picture of this cute creature. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Krzysztof,
a fine capture of rubi with excellent colour contrast. Structures and colours of the fern are very delicate. Excellent focus and sharpness. Wing scales and venation are very well seen.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Krysztof,
Splendid close-up shot. Very neat and clear details. The green leaves and the smooth BG presents a nice contrast to the moth and it is superbly presented. I like its awesome antennaes. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Krzysztof,
Nice shot of this moth. This moth is showing off the beautiful antennae. Sharp and well exposed image. POV and composition are great. Very well done.

Hi Krzysztof,
Nicely capturing this hairy moth, sharp.
Lovely natural colors.
Great shot.


Your capture offers good view of a wing and those curiously shaped antennae, Krzysztof.
The brown wings with clearly marked out veins and those two white horizontal streaks across them look quite interesting.
The shot is well composed against the green BG of a fern.
TFS and regards.
