Hi, Mariana
A classic image of the Ruby Tiger moth Phragmatobia fuliginosa at rest. This species is quite often seen flying by day.

Fondul verde inchis creeaza un contrast suficient.
Numai bine!

Ciao Mariana. Never seen this small beauty. Bright colours in non so best light's conditions. Nice compo.


Hello Mariana,

perspectives and techniques with the very top is a great attraction.
A very interesting species seen in nature considered to have a good guess.
Sharpness and detail with a very ingenious composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards,

Un saludo de Antonio

Good evening Mariana,

What a dark beauty this is. It almost looks as if he is wearing a fur cape!

Splendid details and a wonderful BG, which complements the colour of the Ruby Tiger so well.

Have a lovely Sunday, Amelia
