Ricardo, you have a good one here. The transparant wings are very unusual. Nice colours and detail. Good post. Pity it is not Id'd

A very beautiful moth Ricardo. Its a mystery to me.I've not seen anything like it.I'd be interested to find out more too.
Thanks for showing it to us.

Great picture Ricardo! Transparent moth is perfectly captured and astounding. But stalk of grass is halftransparent, too and light-sruck and I like this effect very much.

Don't know what species this is, but it's definitely interesting with the transparent patches on the wings. We've seen see-through butterflies, but I think this is a first for moths ;-))
The eyes look very similar to the eyes we find on the all-white ones we get around here, so maybe a relative of those.
Nice and sharp capture, good diagonal.

Increibles las transparencias que has obtenido con el contraluz. Las plantas estan muy bien, pero la doble transparencia de planta+ala ya es rizar el rizo, y se distingue perfectamente. La simetria diagonal es casi perfecta. Una foto muy divertida de ver.

Very interesting capture Ricardo. I have never seen anything like this one - not even on a picture. Looks like it is of the same family as the glass-wings (which it is not of course). You are right about the lenght and thikness of the antennas - strange.

Amazing moth Ricardo. I have no idea what is is but would love to know. If you find out please tell me. Great shot, I like the way the clear sections of hte wings appear to optically distort the background. Good work.

Ricardo, acho fantástico o fato de você achar tanta variedade de inseto. Gostei das cores do inseto, da nitidez e da composição.

It's a beautifull specimen, Ricardo. The quality of this photo allows us to see it in all it's splendour. The backlight adds a nice touch to it. Never seen this one before. Thank for sharing.

Maravilloso, Ricardo. El ángulo de grabación nos permite apreciar la transparencia de las alas. Gran finura en los detalles. Buena composición y una buena nota.

Amazing moth, and beautiful shot, It is so interesting and I am sure that it should be a sample of camouflage. I am wondering if it does not try to look like a splash of color on the leaf.

A lovely moth, well camouflaged, I love the transluscent patches, it helps him to appear less obvious to predators!
I shot more than 1600 pics, and still have not finished the 1800 from Kruger shot in Sept, so, you might be surprised by what gets posted.

The clear wings are certainly an interesting feature of this moth. It appears no one has been able to identify it yet either. You have done well with the macro here and the green gives the image a living feel
I had a look into your beautiful archive, wow, that's what I love. So many wonderful and interesting insects, all excellent.
This moth I like so much because of the glass-wings. I was so impressed to see a Glasswing-butterfly, to see now a moth with this wonderful wings is so phantastic.
Thanks for sharing

very interesting moth captured in a very beautiful light that higlights some scales in a magnificent three dimensional way. Stunning to see the transparent windows in between the strong contour dissolving markings that makes the moth almost disappear. Composition is straight and clear.
Great document. Thank you!

This is a great capture.
It is so GLOSSY & so transparent in some spots that it
"appears" to be out of focus.
Very well composed.
Best reagds, Mario.

Increible polilla....pocas veces se ven mariposas nocturnas con espacios transparentes tangrandes en las alas.
Creo que estas confundiendo las antenas....en la foto se ve en frente de la cabeza el primer par de patas que sale largo hacia adelante, y los palpos labiales del insecto (mas cortos) justo en la mitad que salen tambien hacia adelante.Las antenas son de color marrón claro (el primer segmento de la antena es mas robusto y de color blanco), están acomodadas hacia atras, justo sobre el torax y pasando en medio de las dos alas hasta llegar al abdomen.

Wow! Me encantó! Alas transparentes nunca vi! Adoro los insectos, arácnidos etc. Bravo!
