Que impressionante é a natureza, reparem essa camoflagem. Essa mariposa lembra uma folha seca, agora reparando bem, não é que parece um pouco com um dromedario, as corcovas, rsrsrs...
Espero que gostem

What amazing camouflage, Francisco. This is unbelievable.
Ahh... the wonders of nature.
Very well captured. TFS. : )

Fotografia muito bonita e um exemplo perfeito camuflar.A agudeza e os detalhes bons mostraram.

Consideração, Petru

Isn't that just the most amazing thing! Thanks for sharing it. Nice sharp photo.

Bom dia, Francisco,
thank you for this freshly taken, very impressive document of a perfectly camouflaged moth pretending to be a dry leaf.
The picture is very well focussed to give a overall clear image of the moth. Point of view is deliberately chosen to show as much in clear details as possible. Perfectly well exposed, bringing out all the subtle shades of colour. Well set off from the background.
A few more details as to the estimated size of the moth may be helpful for identification.
Thank you for this impressive document!
Best regards,

Hi Francisco,
it looks wonderful - like a leafe of a tree.
The perfect camouflage. It has a nice glance, so pretty, thanks

Great detail and well focused with sufficient DOF, you chose an intersting POV that gets up close and personal. Very interesting subject, well shown. In a perfect world, a different BG would have been nice.

Excellent details and composition, with great exposure, color, POV, and BG which sets it off well.
