Splendid photo, TFS!

Hello Harm,
Excellent capture of this very pretty moth. Details are impressive. Well done! Cheers,

Hello Harm,
Very interesting moth, good work with light and details. The POV is very eloquent. Is very attractive the fact that it has transparent wings, here I have some species with this feature, perhaps some day I published a photo of them. Regards, TFS, Jesús
