Very good capture of this butterfly!
It seems like if it were tinted or airbrushed with that pink tone.
And very contrasting with the white parts.
Excellent exposure and a very effective upper POV to show this colurful insect.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
again that impressive moth, the colours are so brilliant - a perfect shot, thanks

Another gorgeous moth, Nigel.
The colors and markings are exquisite.
Incredibly sharp details.
The light from your flash brings out the beauty without being too harsh.
How do you do that?
A lovely specimen.
TFS. : )

nothing "arty" as you say, but a very pleasant, well detailed, well reported document of one of the prettiest hawkmoths, sitting in dense vegetation that provides an equally pleasant rich background, and demonstrates the good camouflage of the seemingly conspicuous colours and markings.
Also here a lovely fresh specimen that emerged quite early in the year. In front of my home in Vienna I was lucky to find such a hawkmoth resting on the ground under a spotlight around midnight, that was after a very hot day by the end of June this year. I may post an image of that encounter soon.
My congratulations for the successfully breeding, and for this clear image.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Nigel, perfectly focused and composed shot of this Elephant Hawkmoth from a dorsal POV with wonderful colours.
TFS this fine image and have a nice weekend!
Ps. On my butterly shot, we discuss the taxonomic status with Ivan and we share that same id approx. 3 days ago. I will also upload a P. icarus in a short time from Cyprus.
