Well informative NOTE
along witha beautiful shot,

Hello Jose,
very nice picture with good sharpness and splendid details.
Beautiful colors and nice BG. Good composition.
Thanks for sharing

It must be a combination two punch on this one. You used flash which helped detail...then you added splash of detail and your perfect eye-on...could not be sharper unless you wanted to be a surgeon! Spot on technique!

Your Comp, POV, DOF, BG and sharpness of the subject are very good. The detail is great. The Lighting in your pic is also very good and adds to the detail of the subject.

Hi José,

what a wonderful pose of this elegant sphingid moth. This is a smashing image! You are mastering the use of a flash perfectly and all the rest follows. The eyes are striking: big and exposing the focal center. As a biologist I remember that some moths have the most sensitive eyes on earth, getting light information from just a few photons. Thanks for the presentation, José.
Best regards

Ola Jose Roberto,
Tambem ando afastado do TN.
E bom ter seus trabalhos de volta.
Parabens e abraco,

Hi Jose

Another very nice macro from you and again a very intereting species.
The pattern on its body is very beautiful, but what i think i like the most is the eyes - big and bubbly, they simply grad a huge attention :)
Very well exposed and illuminated by the flash. Interesting composition, too.

Bravo and TFS

Nice shot. Sharply focussed and good composition.
