Adscita statices - family Zygaenidae.

Another from day-flaying moths. Very nice with metalic glossy. It preffers violet flovers and a lot of Sun.

Very good photo of this Zygaenidae!
Very beautiful colours!
Very good DOF and POV!
Also a beautiful BG!

Hi Christopher,
well taken, nicely composed descriptive shot of Procris statices.
The strikingly shining emerald iridenscence of that species seems to be difficult to show in a photo.
A bright green background is "stealing the show" in some way.
I suppose that species needs more saturation and a contrasting background with reddish brown hues to demonstrate its showy beauty.
Certainly a good nature document, and a valuable contribution.
The link you provided is very good. Adding the scientific name of this species in writing to the notes or in the title would enable TN's data base search function to locate it, too.
Thanks, and best regards,


  • Great

Calkiem niedawno szmaragdek usiadl mi na dloni, okazal sie bardzo tawarzyskim motylem jednak nie udalo mi sie go uwiecznic na fotografi.

Piekne zdjecie. Wspaniale odzwierciedlone barwy i detale.
