beautiful posting for Midsummer Eve - what a season of plenty!
You are happy and wise to make this day a national holiday. Sitting in madly busy and hectic central Europe, I have decided to do the same just for myself today. Celebrating with you.
Thank you! My best regards,

TFS and Glad Midsommar! Ulla

A very fascinating moth indeed and one I have never seen before (I think). The posting is well done with interesting notes not just about the insect, but also about your holiday festivities.
I like the POV and the composition with the blade of grass dissecting the photo and the moth positioned at an angle forming an almost perfect downward pointing triangle. The details are well defined as the f/14 aperture ensured a good range of DOF. The OOF BG looks great and it makes the moth stand out well on the shot. The colours are fine and the exposure (with the fill-in flash) was well handled.
Good work and TFS.

mooi om deze 'beer'te zien. Altijd leuk om er een tegen te komen. Toch ook wonderlijk hoe akelig symmetrisch en gespiegeld de patronen op de vleugels voorkomen.
Goeie midzomernacht viering. Ik neem aan dat ze dat in Zweden op dezelfde manier als in noorwegen vieren, wat ik een aantal keer heb meegemaakt. Ergens in de natuur met de hele catering er op uit. Veel plezier in ieder geval.

Nice shot with an apt title, though I doubt if you would come across the Wood Tiger on a golf course, but you never know!
Sharp and well composed against acontrasting green bokeh BG this shot shows this species of tiger moth up well enough to be a fine illustration for a book on the subject.
TFS and enjoy your Midsommar!

Excellent composition here and very good exposure! The DOF is great too. A very fine photo of the beautiful butterfly!
Glad midsommar önskar jag dig!

Hello Paul !
What a wonderful moth, I love its colors and markings ! excellent details and textures on the wings, beautiful colors, wonderful composition and POV, and a nice blurred BG. I think the insect stands out very nicely on that green BG. Very well done !

Wonderful close-up shot of this colourful moth. The patterns on its wings are amazing as are the antennaes. The green BG works well here to highlight the subject and the diagonal composition looks superb. Kudos.
