Hello Pawel,
A very nice moth. Lovely colors, very good details and excellent sharpness. Superb composition too.
I can not help you with the ID.

Hi Pawel.
At least I do not know correct ID of the moth. However, it is very nice and you have pictured it at a very attractive natural surroundings. Dark BG underlines the beauties of the species and diagonal composition gives some charm of the picture too. My kind regards and TFS.

Hello Pawel,
A moth which I have already seen too. I see that Ivan gave you the name, it will be useful to me too :-)
Good sharpness on the wings which allows well to identify it. The background looks a little bit noisy on my screen.
Kind regards

Hello Pawel
Interesting species and impressive macro. Good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness.

Czesc Pawel.
Ladne zdjecie tej cmy. Swietny punkt widzenia. Ladne kolory. Moze troche za duzo szumu - ale czasem tak jest.
