[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This moth is very stubborn and always perch on bottom side if the leaf. I had to take photo from very low POV. I don't know its ID. Many thanks for ID this species for Peter Roos(batu).

Hello Pawel,
not easy to take a picture of this always hiding moth.
But this behaviour urged you to use this unusual and interesting perspective.
The focus is placed just inthe right way!
The moth shown is Pleuropya ruralis from the family Pyralidae.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Pawel,
A special view of this fine-colored moth which our friend Peter has identified. Love the subtle color-combination. I have seen this species too, but never had a good view-angle for a decent shot. It would be nice to change the title of your picture.
Kind regards

Hello Pawel,
I was surfing the gallery and noticed this unusual looking moth in a not often shown pose, glad I did. It must have been very difficult to try and get underneath this little guy in order to obtain his picture for all of us to enjoy.
Looks like he is staring you right in the face while wondering "what in the world is this creature doing, am I going to be eaten, I thought I was safe down here".
Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS on this unique photo.

hello Pawel
very nicepose of this moth with good details and lovely colours
