I have searched for more informations here on TN, but to my amazement I have not found one upload of this species. So this is probably the first posting of this moth here on TN.

According to some critiques I have changed the picture.

Als ich nach weiteren Informationen auf TN sehen wollte, habe ich zu meinem Erstaunen festgestellt, dass bisher noch kein Upload gelistet war. So ist dieses hier wahrscheinlich eine neue Spezies auf TN.

Wegen einiger Kritiken habe ich mich entschieden das Bild zu tauschen.

Hello Helmut,
This is great and you have kept the fine sharpness and natural colours. This is a common species in my country but not easy to photograph so well.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Ivan

Hello Helmut,
I saw masses of these little Chimney Sweepers last summer but have not yet seen one here. Not easy to photograph as they're so black but you've got a superb capture of this one showing sharp details and I love the glistening effect on the wings. Great colour balance too and I love the smooth background.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

well done

the previous (Original Version) the very big
free space was unbalancing the photo, TFS
