A wonderful photo of this fine looking moth. Its always nice to be able to see some of their underwing markings and color. Very sharp focus allowing us to get a great look at its unique wing markings and body features. Well done!!

Even in such unfriendly location, you have captured this Moth quite well. Good details and exposure. I like light on subject and bit dark surrounding. Good POV, here.

Les feuilles aident au cadrage du papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Pyrauste du plantain. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.
