|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I shot this Handmaiden Moth with my new equipment (Nikon D7200 + Nikkor 40mm micro) at a very strange location on the boundary wall of my school. The wall has spaced out shallow arches and this Moth was sticking up-side-down on one of the arches in such a way that I was directly under it and a few inches away. Since it was in the shade of a canopy of trees, I used fill-flash to capture it. Here it is and I hope you like it.|
