A marvellous macro capture of the Crimson-speckled Flunkey mth, with superb sharpness and very well chosen POV!
The contrast between the colors of the moth and the bright purple colored flowers, is very well maintained and indeed greatly shown. Unfortunately, the focus on the outer edges of the wings of the moth, is bit soft, but overall, a praiseworthy composition!
Have a nice weekend!
thanks and regards,

A very nice capture, Atanu!
Again there is a moth I have not seen before. And you have presented it beautifully. The POV you have chosen not only shows the moth's details but also manages to get a nice DOF on the left side of image, near green leaves. The colors contrast is nice, I wish the focus was a tad tight on the left side of the moth. Nice lighting, giving your picture a soft tone.
Excellent close up, very sharp, vivid colors and well blured BG,
