Excellent close-up of this beautiful moth showing fantastic details. Can you tell us the size of it? Clever capture considering the circumstances!

Hello Badruddin,
Your and your friends efforts were well rewarded by this fine capture of what looks like some species of noctuid moth.
I presume that there is no book available to be able to identify this.
Anyway the composition, sharpness and general presentation make this a good contribution to TN.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Namaste Badruddin, beautiful capture with harmonious colors and good illumination.

I like it a lot: POV, DOF, focus, colors, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: composition, sharpness (slightly soft), frame and notes.

I don't like it: the lack of the values of the image.

Nice moth very well depicted.
Thank you and cordial greetings... Ricardo

Hi Badruddin,
One of the more beatiful moth that I ever can imagine! Drawing are really impressive. Perfect capture from a frontal pov with excellent sharpness.

merhaba Ali,
Türkiyeden selamlar, çok güzel bir kare, başarılar..

Hi Badruddin,
Very nice photo! I'm glad I can help you identify this moth species as 'Spirama retorta'. Thanks for sharing :)

Salam Badruddin. Looks like a carved mask, something one sees in Bali.Dramatic patterns. Clear image considering the acrobatics involved. I like the monochromatic appearance of the photo. Regards. Klaudio.
