Very nice Luciano. I have always been impressed by your work. Do you frame in the viewfinder or do cropping or blowups?

It seems a task as such beauty is hard to find in low light, well exposed and composed TSF.

Ciao Luciano, gran bella falena, mai vista in natura, magnifici colori, ottima nitidezza e splendidi dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Buona giornata a caccia di farfalle.

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Grammodes bifasciata. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hi Luciano
Well focused and exposed.
The ground is a bit distracting, but the moth is a nice subject.

TFS & regards

Ciao Luciano,
Very nice moth with thw well-known triangle position of the wings, what's so usual from this kind of insects. Excellent exposure and spectacular shallow DoF to frame the moth. Bravo.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
