More infos about this species are also there ;-D

This picture was made after very, very long running just follow this moth in the forest. I have to say that I've seen many, many species but no one can fly so fast like this one.
The flight is also strange - the moth can't fly stright - the flight is so crowded as possible. But I've had a bit of luck and the moth just sitted on the ground to rest for a while. It was a good time to make this picture ;-D

Hi Chris,
you must be a very quick and tough sportsman - Emil Zatopek equipped with a camera!
I am a reasonably well trained finisher of several marathons myself, but I never managed to capture that hectic day active moth, it always was me who gave up the pursuit - and never the moth. Great shot! Thank you, and best regards,
