when I browsed the pictures on my lap I saw this one and I thought: oooh outstanding picture of a very trivial moth, than I saw the photographers name and I understood!
Even more difficult to have such a splendid picture of this monochrome moth!

Exallant macro,
well done.

Hello Christodoulos,
A species of moth I have in my archives too, but my shot is not so good as yours. The English denomination "the Vestal" is adequate and quite well chosen. As usual a high quality picture, not easy with these inconspicious species.
Kind regards
