first post for a while, looking for something a bit different. Not that uncommon but i thought this 6 spot burnet would do.

Day flying moth that like damp meadows.

Thanks for looking

I like the nice simple composition. Brilliant colors, sharp details, and very pleasant background really make your subject stand out.

Hello Chris,
Very nice mage of this beautiful moth.
Lovely colors and details.
Composition, although the moth and flower are a little to much centered in the frame in my opinion, and sharpness are good.
The soft green background is very pleasing.
Would love to have seen a little more color saturation. It looks like the image is slightly over exposed.
Nevertheless a very nice image.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice Sunday,

Chris, The POV is slightly difficult and you have managed it very well. Excellent TFS Ganesh

Hi Chris,
your straight approach from a perfectly chosen eye to eye level point of view, and your strict composition have created a minimalistically reduced, clear image of high aesthetic appeal. The flashy iridescence of the surface of wings is well reported. Very nice presentation of Zygaena filipendulae.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Chris
Very nice shot of Zygaena filipendulae. Nice, natural colours and the smooth background. TFS
