Hallo Peter,
ein Holunderzünsler - diesen Falter habe ich bisher auch noch nicht gesehen. Er ist zwar nicht bunt, hat aber eine sehr schöne Zeichnung. Schade, daß die rechte Flügelseite etwas unscharf ist. Ansonsten ein sehr schönes Foto. - Ich war heute Abend an meinem Fischereigewässer um Libellen zu fotografieren. Mußte leider bei einigen Fliegen und Mücken ein Blutopfer bringen. :-(
Gruß
Heinz

Hi
It's very good shot of these small moth.
Most of people even can't notice that some small objects are really nice. Thanks

Chris

Hallo Peter,
wieder ein interessanter, in seiner üppigen Zeichnung exotisch anmutender Zünsler, den Du uns hier präsentierst.
Diese Familie kleiner, exquisit gezeichneter Motten hat ungewöhnliche Gestalten, die faszinieren!
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
Peter

Perfect shot! Is the creature looking back at you? I think so!
