Acontia lucida
Seguo il consiglio di chi conosce mooolto pił di me le farfalle (maurydv) e quindi do' un nome a questa falena. Grazie Maurizio

Hi Paolo,
Very good photo of this Moth, nice colors and details, TFS!

Hallo Paolo
This moth is well camoflaged against the flower with about the same colours. Indeed a delight to see! We often miss the most beautiful scenes from nature because we tend to look over the "size" of them and just hunt for the bigger animals, and this one is so well camoflaged it can also easily be missed. This is really a super macro. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Paulo,
This is a beautiful Moth that you captured very well with sharp focus on the eye and the extended proboscis. I like the soft background and your fine composition too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Paolo,
this is very good picture from you. Wonderful. good Sharpness and Details and the POV. Exellent work.Best regards Siggi

Hi Paolo,

is seems the same wild flower as i used by the lacewing, te wild carot.
Good pov and detaild but on my laptop the moth looks a litttle overexposure in the white tones.
Fine colours and exellent bg.


Ciao Paolo,
vedo che non hai avuto suggerimenti per questa falena, ti do un buon (al 99,99%) suggerimento con Acontia lucida (Noctuidae), normalmente pił meridionale, ma ormai tutte le specie si spingono sempre pił a Nord a causa di (s)favorevoli cambiamenti climatici, hai rimediato molto bee ai bianchi un po' sovraesposti e comunque si vede molto bene l'aspetto vellutato di una parte del dorso, splendida composizione con un piacevolissimo sfondo.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
