Hasan, I believe this is a moth, yes. When you have a very light background with a relatively dark subject you will have exposure problems. Maybe experiment the next time and over-ride the camera under these conditions? Also try a smaller aperture for better DOF & using your slow-sync. or "bulb" flash setting for fill light.

Yes, this is a moth, Geometridae,

Wonderful patterns on these moths. I often wondered what the use is since most of them are nocturnal.

Very nice capture on a clea background to set it off nicely. Colours and sharpness are spot on.

Hi Hasan
This is a moth, beautiful capture for such drab colours, well done.
