This time quite rare moth - Lemonia dumi. The moths are quite large - the maximum wingspan is 52 mm. The males flies during a day, the females - in the evening and night.
The caterpilars feeds on Taraxacum on hot and sunny places. After pupating - some of them goes out from pupa at the end of Septembar and at the begining of October. The rest owerwinters and can fly next year

What a noble looking moth, Chris.
He looks like a king with an ermine wrap on his shoulders.
Great POV with sharp details and rich colors.

Hi Christopher,
Perfect shot of this beautiful moth.

Hi Chris,
This one of the prettiest moth picture that I've ever seen. Perfect focus, exposure, composition. Very well done. Regards,

Hi, Chris
You have to wonder why a species with such common food plants is declining - but in the UK the Garden Tiger Arctia caja has also declined dramatically, particularly in the south. Something strange is happening.. A new species to me - thanks.

hI Chris,
Beautiful shot, with excellent , sharp detail and brilliant colours. BG is a bit distracting but I believe light conditions did not allow a wider aperture setting?

Hi Chris,
it's wonderful, most I love the antennaes.
Excellent sharpness and warm colours, very well done, thanks

Excelente definición y agudeza para mostrar este "monstruo" alado.
Buen DOF e iluminación que permite apreciar los detalles del insecto, sobre todo su pelaje y sus extrańas antenas.
Correcto encuadre y composición general.

Excellent definition and sharpness to show this "monster" winged.
Good DOF and lighting that it allows to appreciate the details of the insect, mainly their coat and their strange antennas.
Correct framing and general composition.
