Hi Oz

Wow... this is a great looking moth. Love the clear details. Nicely composed, good exposure and lovely colours. Excellent sharpness. Can see those feathery feelers clearly. Lovely work. Thanks.

Bonjour,
Le papillon est magnifique.
Je pense que le cadrage aurait pu être meilleur.

Preciosa foto. La mariposa me recuerda a un farol chino y también a una cometa. Tiene un tamaño portentoso.. No quisiera que chocara contra el parabrisas de mi coche, je. Un saludo. GPC. JL.
