Moths always charge at me when I'm in a room at night with them. I used to be petrified of them as a child. And now that I'm grown up(!!) I have lost the fear, but still don't like them.
This one does look like a ghost Greg, so pale and soft in colour. But it's a good composition, well done...

Great subtle lighting in the photo! Interesting wing pattern and indeed almost a ghost; good title. Composition and framing is very good, this photo has a good appeal. TFS!

Very good details!
No idea of the specie, but it could be a Geometridae.

Excellent moody lighting and very good details, my friend. I like very much how you show the soft colours and textures of the subject. Good composition and your standard framing works specially well on this one. Thanks and regards to you and Joanna.

Can't help with the ID, but I can admire the photo. Very saturated colors in this low light scene. Very sharp detail. This looks excellent.

I looked through the website Alan provided until I was exhausted. I got as far as:
Evergestis forficalis (Linnaeus, 1758)
Garden Pebble Moth
But, I did not find your beautiful moth.
The website is amazing. I never knew there was such variety of these beautifully adorned creatures... A fashion designer could have plenty of material for fueling his/her creativity on this website... Simply awesome!
The "Ghost" is subtle and beautiful!

Another "flying visit" before I disappear again! I know you will have worked out the family to which this moth belongs. I can get you as far as genus - Idaea sp but can't be certain of which (i'll avoid the obvious pun..). If I caught it in the UK I would unhesitatingly go for Idaea aversata, as your specimen seems to fit well within its range of variations, but in Poland you will have additional species that I am not familiar with. All these geometrids are, of course, extremely variable - which does not help at all!

Such a lovely moth, I very much like the colors and pose of this fellow.
Wonderful detail, lighting and composition.
A great job, thank you.
Merry Christmas to you and Joanna!!!

According to the species I agree with Nigel. There are 38 species of the genus Idaea in Poland. I browsed through them and this one looks like I. aversata.
