[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Walking in the summer mornings, among dewy grasses and keeping your attention sharp at the small things, one may discover creatures that don't show themselves often to the people. A miriad of night fliers seek a shady rest place during the hot summer days.
One of them is this moth, Triodia sylvina from Hepaliaceae family. A medium-small moth (20-25 mm long) but with beautiful colours and patterns.
Not common but also not endangered in this part of the country.

Petru, nice to see you around my friend,
Fine details have been recorded in this colourful fellow!
I can almost feel the furry texture, the insect is well framed and presented in a fine composition!

Salut Petrica,

foarte frumos fluturas, nu zic molie caci stii ca la noi la romani, molia e aia care-ti mananca hainele de lana. Poza este foarte faina, nu cred ca am mai vazut asa ceva, detaliile si culorile sunt excelente. Nu ne-ai spus (pentru nespecialisti) in ce tara traieste fluturasul.
Numai bine, Dan

Hi petru,

What an eye you have to capture this moth in an interesting position. We can appreciate this insect with great details and lovely colours. Very well done!


Hi Petru,

This is a very good shot with fine details, well composed.

Well done,

Warm regards,

Very nice capture of this Moths. I've never seen it at large but I hope I'll meet this species someday ;-)
