Hi Oz.
A brilliant moth and a superb shot. Really this moth has shown everything, on what it is capable. Sharpness, details and composition are great too. A little confuses only a white spot above a moth. Perhaps, it would be necessary to correct (or change) this white tone. But that is a matter of taste.
Perfect done and TFS.
