Wow Harm this is really beautiful! The metallic colours of this moth are very striking, the shades of pink and lavender rather unique. I can understand why this Longhorned Fairy Moth has been given this name as it could easily be associated with fairies and elves and all the sequins and shiny colours and stars and glitter and….and…..and. A very beautiful macro, presented in a pleasant manner and that definitely go straight to my theme Metallic wonders of nature, where it rightfully belongs. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
