A nice shot showing this amazing capture of motion!
very well done, HP!

Ciao Haraprasan, original and interesting, splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Extraordinary capture. TFS


Namastey Hara ji,

I like this night capture so much. Very effective use of the light and long exposure time to create a dynamic shot. Even we can observe one of the moths's wing motion in an line. Everything else looks awesome, impressive job MF!
TFS and have a nice weekend!


Hello Haraprasan,

what an very good idea!
Nicely done, its art what you've done the moths are in circle.
Good pov and good exeposure.


Hy Haraprasan
As a thumbnail you don't guess at all the nature of this image. And in fact, is quite interesting: it"s showing the impressive night life. TFS!
Kind regards,

Dear Haraprasan
I thank you for your interesting presentation of moths in flight.

I have tied ""night-life"" images but due to lack of experience they did not show much. It is very dificult to decide how much time-exposure to use.

Enjoy your week-end
Warm Regards

Hej Haraprasan,
An interesting image showing the flight paths of moths and other insects attracted to light. A very valuable contribution to TN, but I can't give you any ID's :))!
Thanks for sharing this one!

Hellow Haraprasan,
Interesting and unique night capture of theses moths showing plenty of movement.

A very interesting picture.

Hello Haraprasan,
That's a very original idea! I like the one in the WS too. Amazing to see the curves written by them, makes a piece of art :-)
Thanks and kind regards

Interesting effect with this long exposure HP, the largest moth "trail" looks like a kites "tail" to me :)

Hola Haraprasan

Original composición de esta polilla en una exposición larga. Buena imagen y sobre todo originalidad. Buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Wow. Not sure I have seen anything quite like this. You have given me something to work at doing...you and Asbed are groundbreaking!

Hi Haraprasan. Wonderful photo of in-flight moths in the night with great colours.
TFS and kind regards,

Hello Haraprasan
very interesting image with an artistic effect, nature is stunning
thanks for sharing this great scene
have a great sunday

Hi Haraprasan. Interesting way of presenting this image in fine graphism. I like the trail against the muted night sky. Well crafted image. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Sunday. Best regards - Jusni.

You have created a unique image through long exposure, HP.
I must admit it is a very unconventional approach but very interesting all the same.
The Moth "trails" form an abstract but attractive pattern.
Well done!

Hello Haraprasan, excellent night shot of flying moths. Artistic view. Colours of trails are wonderful.
TFS and regards,

Originalidad no le falta Haraprasan... un magnífico trabajo.

Hello Hararasan,
impressing documentation of patterns of motions in flight. Creative approach to moths, demonstrating some of the efects of light pollution. Thank you!
With best regards,

This is a FIRST for TN.
Mario with MOST friendly greetings.
