Hello Nick,
A really strange subject for you. But in these rainy days we have to find something in our archives.
But this is a great photo in perfect sharpness and details. Beautiful colours. Even the flower pot is a very nice contrasting BG. Pleasing diagonal composition.

Your first try brought great results, congratulations!

Wonderful macro capture from a moth with nice details! The colors are very well shown and perfectly natural. The sharpness and POV are great and the contrast between the reddish rocky BG and the brown-colored moth, is amazingly well.

Hello Nick,
A fine capture of this Tortricid moth taken from a good dorsal POV. Your G10 has given fine sharpness and colours against a nice contrasting BG.
This group of micro moths includes many species and i don't have the means to give you the right ID.
Thanks and have a good week,

hello Nicholas
separate moment with fine photo output, very good use of light and fine colors, fine close up!
keep photographing! TFS
