The colours are superb, Haraprasan, with so much details and also very natural. I like the spread wings like this, because it allows us to look at its beautiful pattern. Thank you, this is a beauty!

Hi Haraprasan,

Where are you finding all of these moths? This open winged position really shows off the beautiful markings. Colors and details are wonderful. I think this is an exceptionally nice looking moth.

Hello Haraprasan,
Another excellent capture of a moth taken from a fine dorsal POV with great sharpness and lighting.
I don't think the shape of the wings and body, way of presenting the antennae suggest a Geometer moth though.
This looks more like a species of Noctuid.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful and interesting image,
Best regards,

Wow, what a spectacular Moth, HP!
Look at those folded antennae sitting alongside its abdomen.
Its wings are amongst the most ornate I have ever seen.
The image is technically outstanding.
Thanks for sharing it and all the best.

Superb macro, and I really like this new style of presentation you've come up with!

Great capture of this moth with excellent details so we can see the markings. The light background works perfectly!

Hello Haraprasan,
Another very beautiful Moth from you! I love the pose of this one with its legs out in front and the pattern of the wings is fantastic. Very sharp, lovely colours and well composed.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Buena luz y especialmente bien captados los colores nacarados de las alas. Realismo también en los colores. Un buen documento. Siento no pode ayudarte en la id.
Saludos Haraprasan: Josep Ignasi.
