Essa é uma das mariposa mais exóticas qua já vi.
Belas cores, a transparência das asas muito bem captada. Parabéns!!!

Just discovered your photo of the Tiger Moth. It is VERY interesting.
By the way, your photo would be improved, if you had taken it slower and hereby achieved a greater depth of field...
I like the brilliant colours and contrast as well as the lay-out of your work.
Am I correct to assume, that the wings have "transparent windows"?
If this is the case - there is a similar moth here in South Africa, called Window-winged moth (Syntomus cerbera). I have a photo of Syntomus cerbera (Window-winged Moth)but the animal is dead. (Found it on the drive, the body a bit dried out, put it on a bit of paper to avoid it crumbling...)
In the 20 years - I have lived in this part of the world the only one I have seen - never a live one. This moth is special, because their wings have characteristic translucent patches, devoid of scales (hence the common name).
If you are interested, I could put it - for comparison and info - in the workshop of your photo. Just let me know, if you want to see it.
Enjoy the rest of your day,
