After posting a picture of the fluffy arctiide moth Spilosoma luteum, I would like to present another well designed moth:
- Zeuzera pyrina
- family: Cossidae

German: Blausieb

Also, this species is not rare. The only problem is to find it.

Ciao Peter, an other fantastic moth, Inever see before, thanks, fantastic details, wonderful blurry BG, splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hahahaaaa, Deine Überschriften sind manchmal wirklich ein Knaller ;-)
Diese fluffige Motte ist so hübsch, die Zeichnung der Flügel finde ich richtig modern - schwarz-weiß, gemustert, durchsichtig, die Mode der anspruchsvollen Frau von heute ;-)
Erstklassige Schärfe, gefällt mir sehr, lieben Dank

Hallo Peter,
wunderschöner Nachtfalter mit seinen grossen Antennen. Noch nie gesehen.

Hello Peter,
Certainly this "schicki-Micki" seems to be a girl who likes to be staunchly fashionably dressed! This moth would be the envy of "Cruella de Vil" in the movie 101 Dalmatians! ha ha ha :)

Good work, this is even more exotic than the last. The balance is superb, the POV is very efficient and the light is soft and appropriate. This allows a perfect view of this fashion moth!

TFS, Have a happy WE! regards, Jesús

hallo peter,
da ist dir wirklich ein kleines meisterwerk gelungen...absolute schärfe, alles stimmig...weiter so...

Hi Peter

Beautiful moth. A well captured shot that illustrates all the features needed to identify it. Excellent sharpness and composition.


This is a unique Moth for me, Peter.
Your macro of it presents its features very graphically.
The black and white colour combination on it is very charming.
Thanks and regards.
