As you know dear friend Ivan I am less biologist, a bit more nature lover and wholeheartedly photographer (well at least I am trying to be) , so all of this just to tell you where I am steering my judgement in my comments. Good camouflage indeed let me start in backwards. Even the discrete display of this yellow colors does not reveal the presence of the moth. Nature at its best ...as they say! Unfortunately however I feel that the 300mm + is not the ideal tool for this kind of images. This is not a critique Ivan ..just an observation. The sharpness ...he he he ..the sharpness, seems fine but the resolution of the image seems quite weak, and that's normal for most lenses of that caliber. Thank you for sharing Ivan, regards and keep well!

Congratulations for this new species on TN,
and if you didn't do a close-up photo, if you
leaved the moth small on that environment
it would be a great camouflaged photo, TFS

Achhh. Now I have to get my conversion app out again. Meters to inches or feet or some such, but it is clear enough to be at that smaller distance and you're quite right about th cammo. Tres cool Ivan. Hope this small crit finds u better tham me. Recovery from Guillain Barre is tedious and long...

Eres observador Ivan. Interesante trabajo, lo digo por el tipo
se fondo que que usa la polilla para enmascararse, pero que
tambin hace difícil su plasmación ya que cuesta encontrar el punto de enfoque
y luego además no es agradable a la vista :-)
Saludos: J. Ignasi.

An interesting posting and a new species of moth for TN. I never have seen this one, but one with red color on the hindwings. Very well camouflaged on the stony ground. A great thank you to for your precious indications for my last shot. I should have thought about it, we have the same distinction in German (Rabe-Krähe).

Marvellous job, the clarity and details are well done.
