Zygaena filipendulae
Searching your old files is very useful. You find photos that you thought you never shot.
As I read from the photo info it was 1st of August and I went for a walk in a place called Negris near my village Lipinitsa. Our grandfathers says that in that place where the old village of Lipinitsa and after a sickness that fell in the villages they moved to the place where Lipinitsa is now.
I love to be there every summer because my mind travels to the old years and I try to imagine how the people build their houses and live there.
1st photo for the first day of the month.
And a photo that I was sure that I never shot.
I remember this moth from my childhood. I grow up with insects like this. I remember that it was the only insect that I could catch because it never fly away.
Beautiful years.
Thatís why I love it so much.

Hello Thodoris,
A very nice and colourful capture.
Very good composition and POV with good DOF.
A great shot and I enjoyed reading your note too.


One of my favourites too. I have some pictures of them here and lots of others in my archives. They are so easy to photograph because it's really hard to scared them and, as you said, they hardly ever fly away.
The picture is very nice. I like the colours a lot, picture has nice framing too, it could've been a little sharper though.
Anyway, it's a very nice shot.

Amazing work. Lovely composition and colours, just beautiful.

very nice close up. love the colors. you must have so much patience to get this shots. very good dof. congrats, gabriel

Thodoris, I love the photo and the moth. However, I don't love the flower! In Missouri it is commonly known as a "thistle" and has been outlawed as a nuisance. It is illegal to allow them to multiply on your property. I dug about 300 of them up a couple of weeks ago. As a teenager my Dad would make us dig "thistles" for punishment!!! FYI and not being critical of the photo itself. TFS, Kim

Un excelente balance de color , sujeto-flor
que le dan movimiento a la foto pero es una buena documentacion del zygenido
