Noctua pronuba
Thank you very much to Krzysztof, Ivan, Peter and Jose Luis for the identification and comfirmation of the species' name.

Probablemente esta simpática polilla sabía que no podía salir a la calle y vino a casa a visitarme. La invité a pasar e hice que se acomodara en un ramo de flores que me habían regalado. Allí hizo de modelo para mí y pude completar una buena sesión de fotos que iré publicando. Se lo merece por simpática.
Al terminar la sesión abrí la ventana, y tras decir adios salió volando ;)

Lamentablemente no pudo decirme su nombre. "Eso es cosa de los humanos" dijo, "mis padres nunca me nombraron".
Así que yo misma busqué en cuantos sitios pude el nombre que en alguna ocasión algún humano debió darle. ¡Pero no lo encontré! :{

***
Probably this likeable moth knew that I couldn't go out and it came home to visit me. I asked her in and put her up in a bouquet of flowers I had been given. There she became a model for me and I could complete a session of photographs which I will go uploading (she deserves it) ;)
At the end of the session I opened the window and she leaved saying good-bye.

Unluckily she couldn't tell me her name. "That's a matter of humans" she said, "my parents never named me".
So, wishing to know how to name her, I myself looked for the name that some human had to have given her wherever I could. But I dind't find it! :{
(I ask him pardon if he is a male)

Dedicated to Peter Roos and Ivan Kruys and whoever who likes the story :)

Thanks for your visit

Hello Maite,
Excellent capture of the Noctuid moth Noctua pronuba. You're quite right: she is a female, males are darker.
NIce and sharp with good DOF and very good use of flash to produce a fine image that you composed very well.
TFS and the dedication!
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Maite.
I welcome your interesting close-up shot. Lighting is so impressive and unusual as well as the deep shadows. Details of the moth and flowers are really great. I like excellent diagonal composition of the shot. Note is perfect too. Bravo for both and TFS.
Alexei.

Hola Maite.

Esta es con nocturnidad y alevosia como dicen en las policiacas.
La has captado muy bien y por hacer una broma te diria que es de la familia de las mariposas, a que si.

Saludos.

Hola Maite,
thanks for dedication. I see that Ivan already gave the identification which is possible due to the well-seen and sharp details of the forewing-pattern. The additional presentation of the hindwing colours in the insert makes the identification 100% clear.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Maite,
Beautiful shot of the moth. Very elegant with nice colours. The light and shadow effect is superbly done and the diagonal composition looks wonderful. Nice story and an even nicer shot. kudos.
TFS.

Hola Maite, splendida macro con grandi dettagli, meravigliosa composizione, brava, ciao Silvio

Buenas Maite, no me extraña que con esos pedazo de ramos de flores que te regalan, las mariposas llamen a tu puerta. ;-).

La has sacado fantástica, no sé con seguridad la especie, aunque parece la Noctua pronuba (Común por Madrid). Si puedes facilitar el tamaño o sobre todo más detalle de las alas inferiores será más fácil.

Un saludo.

José Luis

HI Maite,
interesting shots and a good collage.

bonjour maité
les papillon de nuit sont peu representé parce que leurs couleurs sont moins vives mais lorsque la netteté est bonne comme ici cela fait de beaux clichés aussi.

Hola Maite,
Lo que Peter, Ivan y otros miembros de TN no sepan es que es de otro planeta. Madrid de éste y ahí está el nombre de la polilla en tu ramo regalado y con su nombre obsequiado también. What more can one ask in this world? I don't like this moth in particular but the way you wrap it for us.

Hola Maite,
Da gusto tener visitantes que se presten para modelos, la toma es muy buena como es habitual en tus fotos, la nitidez y detalles son excelentes, en cuanto a la clasificación me gustaria ayudarte, pero mis conocimientos son muy pobres, tengo un montón de ellas en mi galería personal sin identificar, voy a tener que comprarme unas buenas guías de mariposas y polillas. Saludos
José Ramón

I like your story, Maite; it belongs to the same genre I used a few days back in bringing home a moth from a public place and then shooting it the way I pleased :-)!
The point of view gives a clear idea about its main features as a moth, thus facilitating identification by experts.
I am sure you have more pictures of it to share with us.
Regards.

Superbe macro, très claire avec cet image plus dértaillée qui montre bien son aile.
Bravo

Hello Maite!
This is very nice composition, I especially like an idea to show 2 picture: the first with "total" insect and the second with very characteristic details of the second pair of wings :)
Note is also very nice and funny! ;>

Hello Maite,
an exciting insect I could see. A great micro you did here. A very clear and sharp subject. A very shallow DoF makes this insect well seen and a great composition. Thanks for sharing.

NB- Maite, kindly identify my latest butterfly.
