Species: E. atomaria

The Common Heath (Ematurga atomaria) is a moth of the family Geometridae. The species can be found in Europe and the Near East.Wingspan 22-30 mm.

Inhabiting heaths, moorland and open woodland, this rather variable species flies during the day, sometimes abundantly in sunshine.

It is common throughout Britain, and appears in May and June, sometimes again in August in the south.

The caterpillars, which are equally variable, feed on heather (Calluna), heath (Erica) and clovers (Trifolium spp).

Hello Luciano,
Very beautiful macro in great sharpness and splendid colors. The antennae are amazing.

ciao Luciano
C'est une très belle composition, les ailes déployées sont parfaites et permettent une bonne visibilité des détails et couleurs.
Bonne soirée

The clarity here is superb. The moth's sensors/antennae are clearly visible, and the color and overall sharpness are excellent.

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation aide au cadrage de l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Phalène picotée. La lumièere fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano,
Beautiful shot, absolutely perfect light management, colors, background blur and composition. Wings could be a touch sharper, but those mesmerizing antennae are magic... Superb capture. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Luciano
This pixelated pattern is interesting to me.
I like the soft lighting too.
