This is a splendid moth ! I love the colors and the paatterns on this moth - the wings are particvularly beautiful, I never saw anything like that before. Excellent sharpness and composition, and a wonderful blurred BG which makes you moth stand out very nicely. Very well done !


Well composed macro pic. The DOF, BG, Composition, clour and detail are excellent. Keep up the good work!


Hello Quinten,
the colors in this image really stand out - the simplicity flows nicely together. The end result is a powerful photo. These moths do not disappoint no matter what part of the world you find them. The bright colors, the window panels on the wings, the unmothlike antennae - these are the characteristics because these moths mimic wasps. We live in a truely fascinating world.
