[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cabera exanthemata is a moth of the family Geometridae. The species is distributed in Europe and Asia and also found in North America. The northern most recordings are beyond the arctic circle.
When resting, the wings are widely opened so that good pictures of the wing pattern are possible.
The caterpillars feed on several species of Salix, Populus and Alnus.
Wing span is about 27 mm.

In addition to the lens an Olympus Digital Extension Tube EX-25 was used.
