Bonjour Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon La Boarmie pointillée. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano, delizioso richiamo con dettagli impressionanti, gran macro, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Well captured this moth and the NOTE defines more about, the background looking stream side.

Hi Luciaano,
Detailed photo of a camouflaged moth with nice open-wing position and great exposure. Not your most spectacular photo due to the dull colors of the moth, but again an image with extremely powerful flashlight management. Good shot!
Kind regaards, László
