What an amazing looking moth, Oz.
You caught it in a great POV to show off its intricate designs.
Very sharp details and beautifully exposed.
I like the subtle colors.
TFS. : )

I'm really impressed! Just PERFECT photo - excellent colours, sharpness, nice background.
I'm just wondering about changing my camera to Canon EOS350 but I have to rethink it: Nikon is cheaper but also very good.


Hi Oz

Hi Oz,
Great picture of this moth. Moth details are very sharp with good BG.


I think I have to say that this is the best moth shot I've seen on TN.

I'm stunned, its an absolutely fantastic shot.

Everything is perfect, no nits at all.
Great work Oz.

Hi Oz,
Excellent macro! Beautiful patterns and colours, good details and well framed.

a bit too flashy, but otherwise perfect, TFS Ori
