What a wonderful moth you managed to capture!
The eyes on its hindwings look fantastic, very sharp details of patterns and lovely colours.
At that size it must have been pretty impressive to see it fly.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

a voir ses antennes je suppose qu'il s'agit du papillon de nuit,j'aime beaucoup de motifs sur ses ailes et ses couleurs.
le POV n'est pas extra mais il faut faire avec.

Interesting shot of a Saturniid moth, related to the European Peacock Moth but not of the same genus.
Nice sharp shot with good colouring, the flash doing its job well.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

What a nice surprise and speedy response! And what a beautiful moth you've captured here - it's awfully big with those 10 cm wings! - with those soft, lovely purple-brown-grey colours and terrific cat-eyes drawing all our attention while repelling possible predators! Thank you very much for this impressive portrait of an African Peacock moth!
Bon voyage and a happy return!
With best regards,

Great, sharp picture. Nice details and colors.
Maybe the composition could have been improved a little.
