Hard to find easy to shot
This Forester Moth (Adscita statices) is well camouflaged and its very hard to find it in my places. My shot isn’t so good because I was in a hurry when I found it but I promise next summer I will do my best for another one more clearly.

Hello Thodoris,
Very nice composition where the colours are really strikingly beautiful. Lovely flower too! It's a little soft on focus but I think you did very well! We have the Forester Moth in Sweden too but it isn't common.
TFS, Ulla

hello Thodoris,
you have some beautiful colours here. The purple and the turquoise are very attractive together with the soft green background.
best wishes

Hi Thodoris,
Very fine and wonderful colours for this well balanced picture of the Forester Moth. I like a lot.

Dear Thodoris,
exquisite combination of soft hues of blue, purple, and emerald, nicely composed. That day active but usually very lazy moth is not that hard to find in my place, but always hard to focus for reasons unknown. Foresters are not easy to picture. You did it well. Thank you!
Have a nice day. Best regards,
