|Panthea coenobita - family Noctuidae (former Pantheidae).|
This time quite atractive and large moth. The maximum wingspan is 57 mm.
You can find it in pine forest in whole Europe except British Islands and Iberian Peninsula. Usually it starts to fly in May and fly to the end of July. This year is not "usual" - I've found this female on the begining of September ;-)
I hope the picture will show you that "the moth" could be also atractive ;-D

Greatly capturing this black-white moth. Sharp. Nice shot. May need to 'soften' colors of its surrounding objects.

an execllent presentation of the beautiful wing pattern of coenobita. Light, sharpness and composition are pretty good.
Best wishes, Peter

Beautiful shot with the diagonally split terrain colours, giving emphasis to the colours and pattern of the moth
attractive moth, well taken!
By the way, the spongy fungus material the moth is sitting on is equally fascinating to look at.
