Hi Nikos,the pic is disturbed but i give you 2 points because i know how isn't easy to take moths like that,always hidden under the leaves.And you caught the best in this difficult location,with the best dot of fire to have the best details.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
Use your 200mm lens till you buy a macro lens. Nice silvery color of this moth. Good light and sharpness. Nikos try not to place the subject in the middle of the frame all time. Use focus point or crop.
Thanks for your experimental shot with your new camera and lens,
Ciao Nikos, great macro of lovely white moth, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
