[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At first I did not notice this moth. I stayed put unmoved by slight movement in the bush. But when you want to shoot it, it constantly move around the branch. When it really stopped, I click the shutter.
It wasnt long and then this fella flew off.
Here I used monopod.

Hi Foozi.
I suppose this is rather small moth. It is very attractive and I welcome your decision to share it with us. Despite the mobility of the photo model you managed to achieve nice details of the insect. Diagonal composition of the shot is wonderful. Have a nice weekend,

Ciao Foozi, great capture of beautiful moth, fantastic colors, splendid blurry BG, lovely diagonal composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Foozi,

Well framed in a nice diagonal composition!
Good details in the insect, and the simplicity of the scene focuses the viewers attention well...
Good details and a fine 3D feeling!

Hi Foozi,

The branches is framing well the moth. The macro point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of the yellow moth. The blurred background is putting at an avantage the insect. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
