Hello Luciano,
Very beautiful color it has. Very sharp capture too.


Bonjour Luciano,

Les feuilles cadrent bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon l'Ensanglantée des Renouées. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano,
great shot of this moth. The wings have got a structure like woven cloth.
Thanks for showing.
