Hello Luciano,
What a strange eyes. Great macro of this moth in difficult light and beautiful natural colours. Excellent sharpness, details and contrasting background.

Bom dia Luciano,
Strange moth,but what a photo!
Fine focus, managment of light, details and the entire range of tonalities.

Hi Luciano. How you managed an f-stop of 4.0 and got such a great DOF must be because of the fast shutter. Well done. It's the narrowest DOF you could have used to get the whole moth in focus. It's clear, sharp and complete. I good specimen shot. I especially love how well you can make out the eye and the colour of it. Love it! It's an unuasual look with it's narrow head too. TFS Trevor

OUTSTANDING DETAILED IMAGE of this very small moth........

Hi Luciano.
Selected low POV is superb and allows to show many attractive features of the moth. Shallow DOF and crisp sharpness of the insect image against natural and nicely blurred BG create a wonderful esthetic impression. TFS and warm regards.

Lively contrast that attracts.
Nice shot.
