Hello Luciano
Wow! Wonderful butterfly with amazing colors.
I'm sorry but I can't help you with id.
Thanks for sharing

Ciao Luciano, io mi sbaglio anche con quelle di casa nostra, comunque di fronte a cotanto splendore mi vien voglia di cancellare la Lycaena rachitica e sottosviluppata che ho postato oggi:)
Bellissima esotica dai fantastici colori, anche senza nome è uno spetacolo da non perdere, grazie, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano

Buona sera Luciano,
ID non sapeva come dirlo, ma l'immagine ... superb.
Ho visto anche le specie di farfalle.
E ancora non abbiamo raggiunto l'Africa. Splendida macro, complimenti.
Buona Notte,

Hi Luciano !
Unusual moth, super colours, excellent shot.
I am greeting and I wish the nice weekend, Slawek

Hi my friend Luciano.
An outstanding catch of this moth species. Details and composition are exceptional. Congrats on this first on TN!
TFS.
Kind regards,
Özgür

Ciao Luciano. Beh tanti chilometri per una novità assoluta! Molto bene! Una signora macro luminosa e al top per sharp e profondità di campo. Colori spettacolari riportati - conoscendoti- fedelmente.

ps. Ho fatto un giro oggi ma tranne la solita Inachis mi sono dovuto accontentare di insettini vari. (E il tempo non promette nulla di buono)

Roberto

Ciao Luciano,
una splendida falena dai colori sgargianti, eccellente definizione, una bellissima composizione da giardino dell'Eden.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona notte

Hi Luciano,
This is a very unusual... and very beautiful moth.
The colors are amazing!
I love that iridescent blue.
Great POV and sharp details.
TFS. : )

Ciao Luciano,
Beautiful shot of a tropical moth, excellent exposure, colors and composition, not to mention sharpness. The white flowers in the background make awesome contrast with the rather dark-colored moth. If I have to write one word only about the pic it was "elegant". Fantastic job MF, congrats and tfs.
Have a nice weekend, friendly regards, László

Hi Luciano,

My first thought when I saw the thumbnail was - I never saw anything like this before. Congratulations on your first on TN and thank you for sharing it with us. I would never believe there was a moth with colors like this. The symmetrical patterns are beautiful. A lovely pose on the leaves, fine details, and a fantastic composition.
