[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I photographed this 6 Spot Burnet Moth as I walked back to the car and noticed it on the Thistle. I took it hand held using my (then) Canon 1D mk11, AV and Spot metering. A lucky shot really as I didn't even put my bag and tripod down to take it. Still we all eserve a bit of good luck sometime, we all get plenty of the other sort.

great colors and background. nice composition with the flowers. a little more DOF to get all of the moth in focus would be nice.

Hi Peter, this is a wow shot and a beautiful composition. Light is perfect bring out those lovely colours, both on Moth and flower. All is nice and sharp with a perfect soft background. I have never seen this Moth before, it is lovely indeed.

Hi Peter,
I don't know if you saw my forum topic on the history of TN the other day,but I mentioned there that the very first photo ever posted on Trek nature was Robb Browns inmage of Six Spot Burnet moths feeding on Scotch Thistles (July 2004)
(a wee bit of interesting triva for you there)
You've captured this moth well,with good clarity and POV.
The red patterns are still plainly visible despite the low POV.
Very nicely composed.
Good work.
