Nice picture of moth but i feel the front legs would have been very sharp than this.
It is Xanthia (most probably X. icteritia) family Noctuidae
Very good sharp image. Great black background, nice field guide POV
Very good job
PS Similar species but with dark head is X. togata

What a fine capture of this Moth in beautiful warm rusty/yellow colours! Great details too and a fine composition. This is new to me!
TFS and cheers, Ulla
I didn't know you had a moth trap!
I used to run one for many years and I still have my old one but I don't have it on much in case I get complaints from the neighbours!
This is a great macro of a Sallow Moth taken from a fine dorsal POV with good use of flash and great sharpness and colours.
TFS this beauty,

I knew it was a moth but there are so many....very good archival Joey. one can tell just how far you have come from this...not that it is in any way "bad" but a good comparison of techniques! We put quotes around bad becuase of the proper English way of removing or changing the meaning in some such way....not sure how many know of that rule of English...it is one that is not used much. Some used parens with an ersatz or some such other disclaimer,

Excelente toma Joe, teniendo en cuenta que esa textura y color tienen mucha dificultad para su captura. Muy bien encuadrada. Una fotografía magnífica.
Buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Hello My Friend,
Splendid moth macro with vivid colors and sharp details as always from your camera work. Thank you Joe for sharing your wonderful work.
Whatever it is, it sure is pretty. :)
The pattern and color is unusual, isn't it?
Wonderful capture. I like the way the flash worked here.
The dark background is a perfect backdrop for this shot.
